Just 250 metres from beautiful Bathers Beach, WA Shipwrecks Museum is steeped in history. This truly memorable event space housed within the 1850s-era Commissariat—WA’s first convict-built public building—has been restored to its former glory and is perfect for more intimate events. Read more about the Museum here.

Heyder & Shears are WA Museum’s exclusive caterers and can satisfy all of your demands for exquisite food, excellent staff, and fabulous décor and theming. All events spaces within both Museums have universal access.

Add a unique touch to your event—let us arrange a special after hours viewing of either Museum for your guests to explore the State’s treasured maritime collections. Or at WA Maritime Museum, explore the latest travelling exhibition or a tour cold-war era submarine, HMAS Ovens, with one of our passionate guides, most of which are retired submariners.
