Working closely with Parks Victoria, Australian Venue Co has created Yarra Botanica with a dedication to being as sustainable as possible. It’s at the core of our philosophy and to us, it’s all about choices.  It’s choosing who we work with, what we buy and how we operate, and for us that means doing our very best to support local, minimise waste and use less energy.

This unique floating oasis has been carefully considered to have a minimal impact on its surrounding natural environment. We’ve taken the opportunity to truly immerse the venue in it’s natural river surrounds, with the pontoon brimming with native plants and indigenous aquatic vegetation.

At Yarra Botanica, we are committed to:

  • Using local suppliers and Victorian farmers
  • Using compostable and recyclable consumables
  • A reduction in single use plastics
  • Separating organic and recyclable waste to divert from landfill
  • Energy efficiency strategies aimed at reducing energy usage
  • Implementing initiatives to reduce our carbon footprint
