About This Venue

Built in 1885 and having travelled the world as a cargo ship until 1968 the Polly Woodside is an iconic Melbourne landmark. Located on South Wharf between the CBD and Docklands the Polly Woodside is a spectacular function venue.

Polly Woodside is an amazing example of a late nineteenth century barque rigged, iron-hulled, ocean-going trading ship. With panoramic views along the Yarra River combined with the atmosphere of this historical vessel, you are ensured that your wedding will be one to remember.

Choose from the gallery space and theatrette to an outdoor entertainment area as well as the option of having exclusive use of the ship.
