The shores of Lake Hume have long been a favourite for a gathering of family and friends around Christmas time.
And your Christmas party picnic options just got better with The Boatshed at Lake Hume Resort offering Christmas functions with all the trimmings.
Re-opened by the Traverse Alpine Group in January this year, the fully air-conditioned restaurant, decked out in a lovely Hampton's style feel, overlooks the lake and offers both indoor and outdoor dining.
Shannon Exelby, general manager of Traverse Alpine Group, said with only nine weeks until Christmas, now was the ideal time to book your end of year celebration.
"We have developed some great Christmas menus and the space we have here really lends itself to a leisurely gathering - what better way to thank your team or clients for all their support over the year.
"The beauty of this location is that it is right by the water and has a range of other activities that can be enjoyed like mini golf, tennis, kayaking and the swimming pool.
"If guests want to make a weekend of their event they can connect with Lake Hume Resort and organise accommodation as well."
The Boatshed has an extensive range of packages available and are experts in designing a menu to suit the group and the occasion.
As a guide, finger food packages can start from around $19 per person and a buffet meal starts at $39 per person for lunch or $49 per person for dinner with a range of add-ons also available (minimum numbers apply).
"Our menu can be described as Australian Modern and we aim to showcase local produce and wineries wherever we can," said Shannon.
The Boatshed can cater for groups of 10 to 250 people (sit down) and 350 standing. Christmas functions can be arranged in the restaurant or outdoors in a picnic style arrangement.
The opening of The Boatshed on January 2 this year followed the successful transformation of food and beverage offerings at Cloud 9 and Frying Pan Inn in Falls Creek by the Traverse Alpine Group.
If you are considering a Christmas function here also talk to The Boatshed about courtesy transfer options in their bus which is available in December. The Boatshed at Lake Hume is located via an easy 10-15 minute drive from Albury or Wodonga.
