Welcome to The Boathouse on Blackwattle Bay. We love all good food, but we are especially passionate about Australia’s wonderful array of local fish and seafood, freshly caught every day. Oysters are one of our obsessions.

And while you are exploring our daily menus or simply sharing a plate of oysters in The Boathouse Bar, you can also enjoy magical views across Blackwattle Bay to the Anzac Bridge and Sydney Fish Market from our historic boathouse home.  You might even spot a few Sydney rowers gliding by.

It takes just 10 minutes drive from the City centre, or a water taxi ride to our door, to experience this spectacular flip side view of our amazing city. It gets better year by year; we’ve been enjoying it for 21 years, so far! 

Extended opening hours throughout December

Perched on Blackwattle Bay, our converted boathouse is of course the perfect location for any celebration, night or day. So if you are interested in holding a private or corporate party of any size, please contact Jaime on 02 9518 9011 or jaime@boathouse.net.au to discuss your event.
