About the function space

With a definite wow factor, this hidden gem at Rydges on Swanston is pretty special.

You can party poolside and even have a dip. Either way, the stunning azure water makes a wonderful backdrop for a stylish celebration. The Deck is heated in winter and partially covered, to make it excellent all year 'round.
