The Boathouse Shelly Beach joined The Boathouse Group in 2015, with the original Shelly Beach building being fully refurbished to offer a brand new kiosk, cafe and event space. 

Keeping with The Boathouse Group contemporary, coastal and eclectic design and interiors by Pip Goldsmith, the venue also incorporates tropical, seaside gardens, abundant floral and fruit displays, and a custom waterfall, designed by Andrew Goldsmith.

The menu concept is seasonal and simple, offering fresh modern Australian cuisine with a seaside focus, to be enjoyed on a mixture of communal and individual indoor and outdoor table settings.

 The menu incorporates some of The Boathouse custom grown produce too, including honey and honeycomb from our bee hives at Whale Beach, micro-herbs and edible flowers from our local Northern Beaches grower, and free-range eggs and chickens, exclusive to The Boathouse from Eugalo Farm in Camden.

The Boathouse offers Single Origin Roasters coffee topped our signature anchor, with the addition of cold drip coffee. The Boathouse also offers a selection of fresh juices, smoothies, milkshakes and coconuts, cocktails, beers, and a wine list incorporating a mixture of local, imported and organic wines.

Upstairs plays home to a separate space accessible via the garden boardwalk, designed specifically for corporate events, private events, and weddings.
