Our Club

The Wangaratta Club  has been an integral part of the local community for over 100 years and is conveniently located in the central business district close to everything Wangaratta has to offer.

The Club was formed at a meeting held on the 4th October 1909 at the Wangaratta Library Building. It commenced operation in rooms leased from the Commercial Hotel.

Since then the Club has seen many changes and after purchasing surrounding land in Victoria Parade in 1956 the Bowling Green was opened. Extensions to the building on numerous occasions have been carried out.

The Wangaratta Club celebrated 100 years of continuous operation on the 28th October 2009. A book was compiled recording the colourful history of the Club and is available for purchase.

For further details contact the Club on 03) 5721 3711 or call in and talk to the staff.

The Wangaratta Club is a not for profit organisation and prides itself on creating a pleasant atmosphere for all members, guests and visitors to experience. We are focused on making our Club the premier venue of its kind in Wangaratta providing great value meals, beverages, functions and events. We also have regular promotions and entertainment making the Wangaratta Club your destination for hospitality.

Community Support

We are proud to support many local not-for-profit sporting and community organisations, including Probus, Lions Club, Rotary, North Wangaratta Football and Netball Club, and Wangaratta Magpies Cricket Club through use of our facilities for meetings, and providing fundraising assistance to ensure the continued viability of these groups.
