If I don’t book a party with Cockburn ARC, can I still bring a group of children to the centre for a party?
A patron will only have access to the party room if they have booked a party. If they would like to hold their own party at the ARC they will not have access to this room or facilities in the room e.g. fridge, additional seating. They can utilise the public BBQ’s and public seating space only.

We also have no capacity to have an ‘attendance list’ for parties not booked through us nor can they pay for people in advance. This means if the party host wishes to pay for guest we recommend the party guest arrive at the same time of party host so payment can be made before guest go through. Alternatively the guest will need to come in and out of the aquatic area to pay for guests as they arrive.
Party organizer will email these details- What to bring/ Prohibited items

Knives - Should you need a cake knife, we have some at reception (you will need to leave a valuable as the deposit until the knife is returned).
