14 February 2019 - The new era at Mosman Rowers is coming soon!

We plan to re-open mid-March 2019 and can’t wait to welcome members, new members and visitors.

Our local club in its stunning location on Mosman Bay, with its rich character, historic clubhouse, and warm and friendly culture, will soon be transformed on the inside with a whole new offering for members and guests.

People will love our freshly renovated clubhouse with cafe and function space downstairs, bar and bistro on the middle (entry level), and members gallery / meeting room upstairs.

The Club is under new leadership and management, has a new 20 year lease and is delighted to partner with the well known Bird & Bear Group bringing their professional staff, exceptional service levels, outstanding quality and exciting offerings. There will be a new menu, new staff and special events and offers.

Club members will be pleased to know that so many Rowers traditions will continue including Friday night meat trays, trivia nights, live music, tipping competitions, member events and much more.

The Club will continue to encourage members to enjoy beautiful Mosman Bay through our greatly expanded Paddling & Kayaking Club (including special access for members) and Fishing Club.

We are so grateful to our members, supporters and local community for ensuring this new era is both possible and so promising.

As soon as the extensive building works are complete and certified, we will confirm the re-opening date and plans.

Stay tuned for details!

We continue to welcome new members and all are welcome to join us here.

11 January 2019 – Happy New Year to all our Members and Supporters!

Repairs are well underway with the repairs to the sub-structure of our beautiful iconic Clubhouse now completed, with 7 piles and key headstocks repaired and replaced! Thank you to Paul and the entire AWB team for their hard work and support to complete the work before Christmas.

We have utilised the Community Business Partnership Grant to repair the upstairs Gallery area and balcony and it looks amazing! Hopefully you can see the incredible progress if you are nearby! We are very grateful to the CBP for all their help and support with our Grant.

The Mosman Rowers Board and Members are very grateful to the Mosman Council Heritage team who have assisted us with both guidance and a heritage grant, to restore the front of the building. Thank you to Joe and his team!

smlXL are full steam ahead with repairs. We will see the scaffolding go up this week, to enable repairs to gutters and painting and the interiors are taking shape nicely! We are sure members and guests will be blown away with the restoration.

The New Board continues to meet weekly to ensure we maintain progress and make member centric decisions. We are delighted to have received the Agreement for Lease and accompanying 20 year Lease to secure the future of our beloved Club.

Additionally, we are finalising the detailed agreement with our operating manager, Bird & Bear Group. As announced at the EGM in November, Bird & Bear will work with the Club to help us provide the best experience and service for our members and visitors.


Mosman Rowers is entering a new era, with a stronger, renovated & re-invigorated club for our members and the Mosman Community. We have the support of the community to chart a course for the future, have secured an outstanding professional operator to take our offering to the next level, have plans to undertake over $1m worth of renovations to restore and renew the clubhouse, a new Board in place and we are finalising the details of a new agreement for lease with the RMS.

We will be family friendly and dog-friendly – which matters in Mosman! Exciting new discounts and benefits will be available to members through the Bird & Bear Group’s operations. Check them out here:
