River’s Edge Events Melbourne Events
Located within Melbourne’s thriving waterfront development, World Trade Centre Wharf, River’s Edge enjoys Yarra River views from the city’s fringe. Touted as one of Melbourne’s most refreshing additions to the event space catalogue, River’s Edge is perfect for corporate galas and functions, weddings, and social celebrations.
From the moment you walk through the formal entrance, the striking atmosphere of modern luxury and an abundance of natural light wow. Marked by a grand staircase, dramatic feature lighting, and a plasma screen, River’s Edge capitalises on its prime riverfront location with floor-to-ceiling windows. You and your guests have unobstructed views over the Yarra River from either of the two intimate Juliet balconies.
What makes River’s Edge such a unique event venue is how easily it can transform into a more intimate space. Large operating doors close off areas or create breakout spaces, particularly handy for corporate training days and conferences where teams may need to divide into groups.

Everything went perfectly and to plan, with all credit going to the amazing staff, their outstanding service and communication and coordination with other businesses (such as florist, MC/DJ, photobooth and photographer). We were blown away by the presentation of the River's Edge, the attention taken to small details - the staff and even the security all dressed impeccably to further demonstrate their commitment to their high standard. We had many compliments about the venue I think the service, the reception and the view really made it a memorable place for all.

Rivers Edge Events is such a beautiful venue. As soon as we walked in we knew we had to have our wedding there. The staff were so helpful and made the planning process so easy. The food and service on the night was divine and we are still getting comments from the guests at how great the food was.
