Venue Hire

Located within 68 hectares of tranquil bushland, the Piney Lakes Environmental Education Centre has two function rooms available for hire, as well as a grassed amphitheatre (shaded in the summer months).

Piney Lakes Environmental Education Centre (PLEEC) is a unique and versatile venue, set within 68 hectares of tranquil bushland. The centre has two function rooms and a grassed amphitheatre available to hire by the local community. The centre aims to minimise its impact on the local environment by using alternative sources of energy and reducing waste.


The centre is available for hire with staff support between 9.00am and 3.00pm, week-days.  After those hours a closing and opening fee is charged for accessing the building.

Venue Facilities

Venue hire includes full access to kitchen facilities and a tea trolley with urns, cups, saucers, spoons and side plates.  Chairs and tables are included in the cost of hire and the room can be rearranged to suit the individual hirer. Whiteboards, screens and a range of audio visual equipment is also available for hire upon request.

There are two independent function rooms available for hire which both open to an expansive verandah with views of Piney Lakes Reserve.

  • Rotary Function Room: capacity of 80 people (theatre-style seating), or up to 55 (seated at tables)
  • Lotteries Function Room: capacity of 70 people (theatre-style seating), or up to 50 (seated at tables)

The Centre is only fifteen minutes from both Perth and Fremantle and has parking spaces for 50 cars. Public transport is also readily accessible near by.

Conditions of Hire

The centre is available for hire by local community and small business groups of all kinds. Due to limitations associated with toilets, parking and cleaning requirements we do not accommodate high impact social events with large numbers that generate excessive amounts of waste or noise such as 21st birthday celebrations etc.

All hirers of the venue must have appropriate Public Liability Insurance or complete a City of Melville Public Liability Disclaimer (if applicable).
