Rivers is the perfect place to host your child's party! The tree tops room, located on the mezzanine of The Shop is where parties are held. The room features a large air-conditioned space for the kids and an outside mezzanine space where we often host the children's parents for platters and coffee or drinks.
Most parties are held on Saturdays, unless it’s school holidays. Parties generally run for 2 hours with starting times of 10am,12pm or 2pm. We allow half an hour prior to your party for set up and half an hour for packing down at the end of the party. If you wish to run a party on a Sunday or public holiday, a surcharge applies.
We offer a choice of two food packages priced at $19.95 per child. The food and drinks are set up on a party table either on the mezzanine or within the room. Both of our food party menus are completely nut free. We are also able to cater for Gluten Free Diets by selecting the ‘Healthy Choice’ Party Menu, for which we make a couple of small alterations. It is essential that we are aware of dietary information prior to the party. Not all diets and allergies can be catered for so please talk to us.
It is entirely up to your whether you choose to hire entertainment for your party. We have had face painters, Disney characters, balloon twisting, magic shows and animal farms to name a few. Please ensure that you liaise with us to approve your desired entertainment prior to booking to ensure that the room is suitable.
You are welcome to bring a birthday cake and candles to the party. Please ensure that you bring either cake bags or the necessary items to package or serve the cake as we leave this for you to organise. You can also bring balloons, party hats and other decorations for the party along with lolly or giveaway bags.
Most hosts invite the other parents to stay and to enjoy coffee, drinks and some light food. It’s a great way of parents seeing what the kids are doing, but a great chance for parents to catch up too! Our Functions team can help you with your selection of platters depending on anticipated numbers attending.
