Being a function venue situated in the heart of the Durbanville Winelands allows Hillcrest Quarry to host a multitude of varied events, ranging from music and lifestyle events to corporate year end functions, team building days, conferences, weddings, and even birthday parties and Bar Mitzvahs.
Situated in a rehabilitated quarry in Durbanville, our views are extraordinary, with sheer cliffs which catch the light in breath-taking moments, a large lawn area and a sparkling dam which allows us to offer our clients a number of outdoor activities, ensuring unique and unforgettable experiences. Our wakeboarding days are extremely popular and enjoyable, and can also be arranged for private functions. We also offer kayaking, stand up paddling and canoeing for functions, making year end parties an absolute blast!
With two venues to choose from, we can accommodate groups from 30 to 120 people in our Lakeside venue, up to 280 in our main venue, and up to 2500 at festivals and expos. With the option of Bedouin tents and marquees on our lawns, we are able to offer memorable events to our clients throughout the year –we have you covered no matter the weather!
We have hosted events for key corporate companies, featuring outdoor activities such as lawn games, bespoke food stalls, wake boarding, stand up paddling, canoeing, dunk tanks, human fooseball and waterslides. On the other side of the coin, we have hosted formal gala dinners under the summer stars and award ceremonies with live entertainment, always bringing out the glitziest and most glamourous in every guest. We have had dozens of themes from formal to informal, and everything in between.
Expos and showcases of are another exciting option we offer. Charity fundraisers, product launches, equipment showcases and expos for lifestyle brands are just a few events we have hosted in the past year.
Weddings are always wonderful to host, as being a part of someone’s special day, and part of their memories forever, is incredibly rewarding and exciting. Our views make for incredible wedding photos, with the afternoon light glowing behind a radiant new couple, and lush lawns contrasting against beautiful suits and gowns.
