Hire Our Landship (because we are Sea Scouts)

The Pamphlett-Tennyson Sea Scout hall/land ship in the Simpsons Park, Graceville, is available for hire for many kinds of occasions including kids parties, club gatherings, meetings and so on.

The Graceville hall is hired on a regular basis for Sailability Graceville, Square dancing, BeLeste Dance Bridal Lessons and fitness groups.  It is also the location of the Graceville Makers Markets.  These are all great local charities and businesses and we encourage your patronising them.

The den has a functional galley kitchen, airconditioning, and facilities such as seating and tables. The proceeds from the hall hire help us pay and maintain the scouting facilities, boats, canoes, equipment etc which are available to the members of the Pamphlett-Tennyson Sea Scout Group.

The Hall is available to groups, organisations and individuals for activities that the Scout Association considers are compatible with the principles of the Association and which benefit the community generally.  The following  are examples of the kind of groups which may be interested in using the hall:- fitness groups, dancing classes, community interest groups, weight watchers, Senior Citizens, , youth groups, junior sporting clubs or similar organisations. If use of the park is required for your event a separate application may be required to be submitted to Brisbane City Council.

Because our building is owned by the Brisbane City Council restrictions apply regarding noise levels and the consumption of alcohol on site.  As such, we can not hire the hall for events such as 18th and 21st birthday parities, pop or rock groups or youth parties.

Public risk insurance does not have to be obtained by private hirers e.g. a child’s birthday party but councils, businesses, clubs and community organisations must have $10million public liability insurance and must be able to supply a certificate of currency as evidence of their cover.

The current rate for hiring the hall is $50.00 per hour for short-term hiring.  Dimensions of the hall are 11.5m x 7.8m (a total of 89.7m2), thus able to carry 22 people at one time.  The verandah is a further 18.5m x 4.5m (83.25m2).
