The Best Way to Celebrate EOFY

There’s no better way to shake off the end of stressful deadlines, audits and EOFY mayhem than a good ol’ party - and the best parties include cocktails, delicious food and a word class view!

After getting through the financial year, it’s time to celebrate and recognise the hard work of your employees. They deserve some time to unwind, and so do you < insert a cocktail (or ten) here >!

Whether you’ve smashed your budget, won some great new clients or finally reconciled that complicated stock pile, an EOFY party is a great incentive to look forward to, and reinvigorates morale for the new financial year ahead.

Our friends at Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel have incredible offers including reduced minimum spends and discounted venue hire, available for events booked and held before 25th June 2017. Here are some top recommendations to help you plan and execute your event with ease.

Recommendation #1 – The Daytime Dream


Ever wanted to be one of those people you see on Facebook who float around on boats, bubbles in hand, mid-week on a Tuesday? Now’s your chance.

Hire a private charter boat, or just hop on a ferry, from Circular Quay, Manly, Rose Bay or Double Bay direct to Watsons Bay Wharf in less than 20mins to set the tone for your epic EOFY party (sailor hats optional).

Step off your vessel like a real house wife in Monaco and strut into Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel to be welcomed with oysters, champagne and music. Whether you’re booking for 20 people or 1500, the Beach Club has multiple spaces to cater to your party size.

Enjoy a lazy long lunch – sit down, BBQ or cocktail – while looking over Sydney’s amazing harbour and city skyline. You’ll be saying ‘what budget?’ within minutes.

Recommendation #2 – Sunsets Are Best In Winter


As days grow shorter, sunsets glow with the most spectacular hues, blooming with pinks, reds and oranges. Why are autumn and winter sunsets more vivid than any other time of the year? It’s science. And we have the Instagram posts to prove it.

Technically, it has something to do with the air molecules. However, socially we focus on that great sunset moment where everyone whips out their phone and their inner tourist shines. These are the moments you want to share with your employees to say thank you for all your hard work this financial year.

Book an event on the Top Deck at Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel to get the best sunset vantage point – perfect for canapes and drinks from 4pm onwards.

Recommendation #3 – Nature Isn’t Just For Bear Grylls


Prefer to connect with the land (or sea) and really bond with your team over dynamic activities? Watsons Bay is a nature haven with the iconic Camp Cove, Robertson Park, Gibsons Beach and Hornby Lighthouse within a 2km radius of each other. Why not plan an amazing race or treasure hunt around the area, with the winning ceremony hosted in Watsons Bay Beach Club.

With a range of corporate team building companies to recommend, Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel can point you in the right direction to organise check points and hidden clues to bring to life your company’s very own amazing race challenge.

After the race concludes, host your trophy ceremony in our Sunset Room and enjoy music, food and drinks while laughing over the competitive ones, the weakest links and the new allies.
