Named after Captain Cook’s majestic vessel and its on-site replica, the HMB Endeavour, the Endeavour Pavilion is an exciting new addition to the wharves of the Australian National Maritime Museum (ANMM). In addition to its prime waterfront location overlooking the stunning harbour, the Endeavour Pavilion also offers all-inclusive event packages, with everything from venue hire to catering and furniture looked after on site.
The venue offers guests a unique setting for a function with a wow factor, with the Pavilion nestled elegantly amongst historic vessels, set against the spectacular backdrop of the Sydney skyline.
The Endeavour Pavilion is a bespoke marquee from White Umbrella. It can be arranged to suit any event from cocktail parties, Christmas parties, product launches and award ceremonies, to large sit-down lunches or dinners. With four furniture ranges to choose from, the space can be tailored to suit the theme of any function, from modern and edgy, to classic and refined. Clients can specify their furniture selection and how they would like the space to be configured, whilst the Pavilion is fully equipped with lighting and sound.
“This new generation of event planning takes away the hassle of coordinating all the necessary extras, thereby saving organisers time and money,” said Matt Lee, ANMM’s Assistant Director of Commercial and Visitor Services. “It also minimises the risks associated with using multiple suppliers – particularly during the festive season,” he added.
The Endeavour Pavilion’s comprehensive event packages include catering from award-winning catering and corporate event specialists, Laissez-Faire. Based at ANMM, Laissez-Faire is renowned for working with premium and local seafood and beef suppliers, artisan cheese producers and quality local fruit and vegetable growers, developing inspiring, seasonal menus that bring the best produce to every event. Laissez-Faire is committed to providing unforgettable experiences through innovative and creative cuisine and outstanding service.
Guests attending events held at the Pavilion will enjoy the level of expertise and professionalism that can be expected of an established venue, within a contemporary new setting.
The incredible versatility of the Endeavour Pavilion makes it the ideal venue for all Christmas cocktail events, corporate lunches and dinners, and other end-of-year celebrations. It can accommodate up to 200 guests seated or 350 cocktail, with packages starting at $140 per head, all-inclusive. Guests will delight in the fresh, seasonal menus on offer from Laissez-Faire, including a Christmas-themed canape menu featuring fresh, bite-sized takes on the classics, such as shaved turkey on rosemary toasts with cranberry compote. Plated menus offer a full three-course selection, including the quintessential Christmas pudding and summer berry trifle desserts.
The Endeavour Pavilion will be available for hire from November 10. The venue’s affordable, all-inclusive packages and its proximity to the CBD make it the perfect option for any last-minute Christmas bookings. ANMM will also be offering guests the opportunity to complete their event with a visit to one of its fascinating exhibitions, or to climb aboard the HMB Endeavour moored alongside the Pavilion.
