About This Venue
The Raft is Perth’s iconic open-air floating event space.
Our 250 patron capacity venue has complete water and Perth City views with private access via The Raft’s tender vessel. Permanently moored on the Swan River, every element of the venue is carefully considered and draws inspiration from WA’s coastal landscape.
A spacious open deck is paired with custom-designed furniture, a deep ocean tiled bar and sandy stone bench tops – the resulting vibe elegant, modern and effortlessly beautiful. As a result, little styling is required.
A purpose built boarding platform seamlessly connects passengers from Barrack St Jetty to The Raft’s tender vessel, transporting you and your guests in style. Once on board The Raft, the real memories begin. Relax and enjoy the simple, high quality beverages and food on board. All this while taking in the stunning vistas of Perth City, Elizabeth Quay and Kings Park. It’s a truly memorable and iconic experience befitting of a wedding.
We have teamed up with the culinary team Heyder & Shears to come on board for all your catering needs. Heyder & Shears deliver fresh, innovative and modern cuisine catering for seated table arrangements as well as substantial cocktail offerings. Seasonal sample menus are available on request.
The Raft has a retractable roof and blinds that completely enclose the venue from rain, making it a comfortable, accessibly luxurious space for all weather.
