Glasshouses, chippers, slew walls and underground bunkers. We’re not your average events venue.
We’ve up-cycled The Mill’s industrial past into spaces both stunning and functional for performance, parties, meetings, weddings – events of all shapes and sizes.
The Tin Shed
Once the centre of the former wood chip production line, the Tin Shed is now the heart and soul of Spring Bay Mill. We have preserved the rustic, industrial feel and added a few modern touches for comfort and convenience. The space has an outstanding natural acoustic making it ideal for music and other performance.
Capacity: 300 seated
(to be completed 2020)
This semi-circular structure was formerly the ‘slew wall’ which held thousands of tonnes of wood chips waiting to be loaded onto ships in the bay below. By adding a movable stage and rotating seating around a central pole, we are creating a flexible performance space that can be adapted for audiences sizes and orientate in different directions according to the weather or time of day.
Capacity: up to 90 seated, more standing
(to be completed 2020)
Small performance or meditative space.
The main building was once the admin centre and offices for management of The Mill. It now houses our reception, bar and lounge area as well as the commercial kitchen and a large space with spectacular views of the bay which can be used for dinning, conferences or a performance space.
The building also contains a meeting room with a conference table for up to 20 people and projection facilities.
Capacity: 200 seated for dining, 250 seated for meeting or performance
In the background our truly remarkable horticulture team led by the astounding Marcus Ragus has quietly created a massive organic garden at Paddy’s Bay which produces an astonishing array of fruit and vegetables. If you want to get in to buy the most exotic and wholesome vegetables on the East Coast you’d better sign up for out weekly garden newsletter here…
We offer a choice of off-grid beach shacks or glamping tents and can currently accommodate a total of 22 people on-site with more being added later this year. (For bigger events, ask us about other accommodation options near by.)
Also in the main building we have a meeting room with a conference table for up to 20 people and projection facilities.
