Functions

Would you like to host your special occasion with us, up here on the cliff-tops in Port Willunga?

We are proud to call the Fleurieu Peninsula home, known internationally as part of the McLaren Vale wine region, and locally part of the Onkaparinga Council area.

We love our spot on the cliffs of this stunning part of South Australia, and we know you will, too. A pretty special spot for some memories, we think!

Wedding, birthday, party – whatever you’re celebrating, we love celebrating at our place.
