Flagstaff Gardens, Dudley Street, West Melbourne, Melbourne
The City of Melbourne Lawn Bowls Club was founded as The West Melbourne Lawn Bowls Club in August 1866 at the Sablioniere Hotel, once on the corner of A'Beckett and Queen Streets, West Melbourne. The Club moved to the Flagstaff Gardens in 1879. In 1880, we were a foundation club when the Victorian Bowling Association (VBA) was formed.
The Club changed its name to City Bowling Club in 1904, and to the City Of Melbourne Bowls Club 1964.
In January 1994 fire destroyed a large part of our clubhouse, decimating our facilities, organisation and records. However, with the tireless support and dedication of club members, the Club regouped and continued to operate and prosper, even with limited facilities.
With thanks to the City of Melbourne Council and Council staff, the opening of our new Clubhouse marks the completion of a journey which began on that tragic day in 1994. We welcome the City of Melbourne to our club.
The City of Melbourne Bowls Club is available for bookings. With its beautiful surrounds, friendly ambience and central location it is the perfect place to host your work and social events. Our function space can seat up to 120, or up to 200 if organized as a limited seating/cocktail event. This space is also ideal for corporate conferences and seminars, with excellent AV facilities. Wedding receptions and birthday parties are also ideally suited to our beautiful Lounge area. The club also prides itself on its comprehensive list of quality wines.
