The Boathouse Group began in 2007 with our Palm Beach cafe, established by Pip Robb and Andrew Goldsmith. The Group currently offers three flagship Boathouse cafes, a local cafe bakery concept called Whale Beach Deli, a collection of wedding and event venues, as well as a homewares and interiors store called The Boathouse Home, located near our first site in Palm Beach. 

Our newest edition to the group is The Patonga Beach Hotel. This new venue is to become The Boathouse Hotel Patonga next year after a small refurbishment. It will be our first venue on the Central Coast, a 1.5 hour drive from Sydney and 15 minute boat trip from Palm Beach. 

We have always had the aim of creating experiences which people love. We try to do this through high quality products and ingredients, as well as by trying to offer a fun and genuine service along the way. We have always aimed for our venues to be the heart of the community and provide a classic Australian beachside experience. 

The business is operated by Heath Bambridge, the group COO, who was one of the earliest full time team members. We are lucky to have an outstanding team of over 300 people who help to make The Boathouse what it is today.
