Delve into the nitty gritty details here …
Can I book a tour of the venue?
How does the bar work?
Our fully equipped bar has been kitted out with the best barware around and is just waiting for you to fill it with your own beer and wine. This means you’re not limited in what beverages you’d like to serve your guests and represents a significant saving. And the best bit … what you don’t use during your function, you take home with you.
Our RSA staff will take care of the set-up, serving and cleaning up so you can focus on what’s important.
Can I bring in my own caterers and decorators?
We’ve selected the best caterers and decorators the Coffs Coast has to offer and we work exclusively with these suppliers. This not only gives you peace-of-mind but it also gives you great flexibility in food choice, styling options and budget – something which is hard to find at other wedding venues.
For all other suppliers, you’re welcome to pick your own dream team. To take the guesswork out of the equation, we’ve put together a list of trusted suppliers here.
Do I have exclusive use of the venue?
You absolutely do. This is one of the biggest draw-cards our venue has to offer. You have full and exclusive use of the venue (including the oceanfront deck), enabling your function to be private and intimate.
How long is the venue hire for?
This will depend on the type of function you’re hosting.
For weddings and engagements, you have access to the venue from 9am on the day of the event to 8am the following day.
For corporate events and private functions, you have access to the venue for an eight hour window.
And for wakes and memorials, you have access to the venue for up to four hours.
Can I book the venue for a birthday party, buck's or hen's night?
Number 1 Ocean Street is not currently taking bookings for birthday parties, hen’s or buck’s nights.
Where do our guests stay?
There’s plenty of accommodation in the northern beaches area of the Coffs Coast ranging from budget motels through to luxury homesteads. Some properties are even within walking distance of the venue. We’ve taken the hard work out of the equation and put together a list on the ‘Accommodation’ page.
Is there a curfew?
With the majority of venues in the area having an early curfew, this is one of the area we stand apart. Our curfew is at 11:30pm.
What is included with the venue hire?
We’ve thought of everything and supply all the must-have’s for your function. Whether it’s tables, chairs, crockery, cutlery, barware or AV equipment, it’s all included in the venue hire fee. No expense has been spared with all our inclusions being of the highest calibre. We’ve put together a comprehensive list of inclusions here.
And of course, if you have a specific look you’re aiming for, you’re very welcome to bring in your own items to style the venue your way.
Does the Events Manager take care of my event planning?
Our dedicated Events Manager is there to take care of all aspects of booking the venue and coordination of the inclusions you wish to utilise.
If you require the services of an event planner, we’d be happy to make recommendations.
Can I book the venue for a couple of hours or half-a-day?
Number 1 Ocean Street takes bookings for full days only with the exception of wakes/memorials which are limited to a maximum of four hours duration.
Is cleaning included in the cost of the venue hire?
Yes it is.
Do you have a wet weather ceremony option?
We have not one, but two options for ceremonies should you experience inclement weather. These options are so attractive that some couples have opted to use them as their Plan A rather than Plan B. And the best bit, we don’t charge extra for the service.
How much does it cost to hire the venue?
This will depend on the type of function you’re hosting and the day of the week you’d like to hire the venue. Rates start at $1,600 (ex GST).
