Waves is the perfect venue for any event – sweeping views of the ocean, delicious food, friendly service and all at a very reasonable cost.
Thank you for exploring our private events package. Our aim is to make your event not only incredible but also hassle-free. Therefore we have formed a number of private event packages to cater for your individual needs. Furthermore, we warmly welcome all enquiries via our functions coordinator at functions [at] wavesonthebeach.com.au or fill in the contact form on this page (preferred). From there, you can discuss one on one with our coordinator to help tailor-make an unforgettable event at Waves.

OUR DEFINITION OF A PRIVATE EVENT
Our definition of a private event at Waves on the Beach requires you to book the entire venue out. If you are requiring smaller bookings, please see our Group Bookings guide under the Functions tab on our website.
A FEW IMPORTANT THINGS ABOUT US
As the name suggests, Waves on the Beach is located right on the beach in a premier location in Frankston at the foot of the Mornington Peninsula near Melbourne. The views from the venue are simply breathtaking, and are the perfect backdrop for any special event.
Whether it is an engagement or a birthday party, our venue is suited towards more intimate events – if you want to have a couple of hundred people seated at a huge venue, we are not the place for you. However if you are comfortable in seating up to 70 people or holding a Finger Food / Cocktail Event for up to 120 people, Waves on the Beach is the perfect venue. Furthermore we have a range of beverage packages, which you can view under the menu tab.
With our team of experienced chefs, we ensure that the meals served will not only look and taste absolutely delicious but will also be of reasonable size. A big belief of ours when it comes to private events is that no one should be left hungry. We will make sure that all of your guests are completely satisfied.
Our prices are the same for all events. Furthermore, there are no hidden costs – all the costs are outlined in this guide. Hosting private events is something we really enjoy and we do it extremely well.
By having years of experience specialising in events, we make sure that no detail is overlooked. We believe in having constant communication with our clients, and are pretty flexible with requests.
Every private event that we have hosted has been an incredible experience for our clientele. We do book out quickly, so make sure you book early to secure the date that you want.
Seated Private Event: (3, 4 or 5 courses) If you would like a Seated Private Event, we can seat up to 70 guests with a small dance area. The less guests the larger the dance area.
Finger Food Private Event: (Finger Food Package) If a Seated Private Event isn’t for you, we can do a Finger Food Private Event. We are finding Finger Food Events are the new trend and have become extremely popular. We have the capacity to hold up to 120 people.
The deposit must be paid to make your booking. Full payment is to be given two weeks prior to your function. Final number of guests can be confirmed one week prior to your function. Any additional costs on the day of function must be finalised that day.
