Southern Buoy Studios is a dynamic gallery and studio space on the Mornington Peninsula.

Southern Buoy Studios is available for venue hire.

Southern Buoy Studios is a unique and versatile space in Mornington, perfect for a variety of functions and events. Boasting high ceilings, beautiful and diverse artworks and exhibitions, and a glimpse into studios belonging to celebrated Victorian artists, SBS is the perfect venue for your next function.

We host a range of events including:

  • Cocktail parties

  • Sit down dinners

  • Workshops

  • Classes and masterclasses

  • Events

  • Fashion shows and shoots

You can choose to keep your event simple and let the displayed artworks shine, or you can style the space with your own special touch - we are happy to chat about what you want to do with the space and help make it happen. We are flexible in terms of times for venue hire.

The space can comfortably hold 200 people for a standing function and a long table for 70 people can be catered for, running the length of the gallery. The entry of the space can also be used to setup smaller tables.

We encourage you to arrange your own catering, styling and furniture hire to suit your event. However, we have worked with and recommend:
