Private Homes

There’s No Place Like Home…

While ACC Catering offers you an exclusive selection of superb venues, there are times when there is no better venue than your own home. Our service enables you to create the perfect event in the comfort of your own home, giving you the freedom to host an amazing event without the expense of hiring a venue.

ACC boasts a fine reputation in providing our clients with an event management service at no extra expense. We can help you create that moon light cocktail party by the pool; an intimate family dinner; or manage that grand wedding for hundreds in a marquee on a lawn or tennis court. From simple Spit Roasts & BBQ’s to grand events, the beauty of ACC’s specialist in-home catering service is its simplicity and flexibility.

The expert team at ACC can handle every aspect of the event, from conception and site-inspection to clearing away the last champagne flute. All you have to do is play host and enjoy yourself.

You may decide to handle the beverage service yourself; in that case, we can still provide everything else: food, refreshments, tables, chairs, crockery, cutlery, stemware, napery, cookware, bar, marquee, entertainment and decorations. ACC will set it all up and clear it all away. We can deliver the food ready-to-serve or prepare everything on-site. It really is all about quality, simplicity and peace of mind.

If you are planning a special event for 30 – 3000 guests and need to discuss menus, theming & decorating ideas, staffing, entertainment, cocktails or equipment hire, please do not hesitate to contact our Functions Co-ordinator to discuss your requirements in further detail. You’ll be surprised how simple & cost effective it can be.

Kingston City Hall

Kingston City Hall is the former Moorabbin Town Hall, situated on Nepean Highway in Moorabbin and only 20 minutes’ drive from the CBD.

As you would expect with an important civic building, Kingston City Hall is based around a variety of reception, function and auditorium spaces.

Kingston City Hall’s flexible room set-up options make it ideally suited to variety of events, from small meetings to large conferences, concerts and functions.

The Grand Hall, Banquet Room and Function Room are interconnected and interchangeable; by combining the Grand Hall and Banquet Room, for instance, you can create an impressive venue with a seating capacity of 1,000, perfect for awards nights, recitals, school events, balls, exhibitions and trade shows. The Function Room, by contrast, can be divided into sections small enough for private gatherings of 10 people.

The jewel in the Kingston City Hall crown is undoubtedly the historic Wurlitzer theatre pipe organ, which ascends through the Grand Hall stage floor while it plays. This National Trust-listed instrument, built in 1928, recreates the majestic sound of an entire orchestra and is a unique and entertaining point of difference for any event.

The Wurlitzer is available for hire and staff at Kingston City Hall can assist with sourcing professional organists.

Lose yourself in the grandeur of the Meat Market, the perfect event venue for lovers of history, culture and art. The Meat Market’s cultural significance is crystallised by the fact that it is a grade one heritage-listed building, and has stood tall since 1880.

As the name suggests, the building was once a commercial meat market, with the cobbled floor and barrel vault ceiling remaining intact to pay homage to this history. In 1977, the building was revived from its derelict state by the Hamer Government and operated as the Meat Market Craft and Events Centre. It was then closed in 2001 for redevelopment and now exists in its current incarnation as the Meat Market, an innovative, multi-genre arts and event space.

Today, this North Melbourne icon is used for performances, events, conferences, filming and rehearsals.

Warrawong Woolshed

You don’t have to travel beyond the black stump to host a sophisticated soiree in a historic country venue. Warrawong, in Melton, is a rare 19th-Century Heritage Listed bluestone shearing shed that once serviced the major pastoral estate Exford, which, at its peak, covered over 100,000 acres. This is the closest you’ll get to bush-dance country so near to Melbourne.

Built in the mid-to-late 1850s by a notable squatter, it sits on property affording panoramic views of Werribee River, Exford Reservoir, and the Toolern Creek valley. In the early 20th Century its owners included a well-known female racing motorist and the first Australian to compete in Monte Carlo – a world-ranking polo player, and the managing director of the Swallow and Ariel Biscuit Company.

Warrawong Shearing Shed’s historic appeal, generous dimensions, arcadian setting and proximity to the city make it a unique venue choice.

Kick-up your heels at a hoe-down: hay bales, square dancing, a hearty buffet and an authentic bush band.

Or perhaps Country Posh is more your style: a sophisticated dinner party in the landed-gentry style, with scene-stealing decor, elegant tableware, fine food, and classy entertainment.

For a party-with-a-twist, stage the most incongruously themed event for a bush shed: a corporate product launch, an evening of cocktails and jazz – the possibilities are endless!

Whether you’re planning a large-scale event or an intimate gathering of gourmands, let your imagination run wild and let ACC make it real.
