EOI to manage the delivery of F&B services at Sydney’s Royal Botanic Garden and Domain

October 11, 2017

An exciting opportunity to transform a world-leading Botanic Garden and one of Australia’s most iconic tourist destinations.

A rare business opportunity is now presented for operators to submit Expressions of Interest to manage the delivery of food and beverage services at Sydney’s iconic Royal Botanic Garden and Domain.

The Royal Botanic Garden and Domain Trust (Trust) is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) for its three-existing and iconic food and beverage venues, comprising: Botanic Gardens Restaurant & Botanic Gardens Café; Pavilion Restaurant & Kiosk; and The Calyx & Calyx Café.

The leases on these three venues will come to an end on 30th June 2018. Expressions of Interest may be lodged for one, two or all three of these venues.

Situated in the heart of the Sydney CBD, the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney and Domain occupies a coveted 30 hectares of harbourside green space, surrounded by the world-renowned Sydney Harbour, Opera House and Harbour Bridge. This beautiful garden situated in the heart of Sydney, plays host to many and varied events including New Year’s Eve on the Harbour, Carols at the Domain, and Vivid Sydney Festival to name just a few. Sell out events throughout the year feature Field Day, Harbour Life and Redbull Music Festival Weekender. Millions of dollars are also raised through charity and community events including Mother’s Day Classic, Sydney Running Festival and Run to Cure. During the 2016/2017 New Year’s Eve celebrations, 28,000 patrons attended eight simultaneous free and ticketed events at the Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain and in the new year, over 78,000 patrons attended the 2017 Open Air Cinema season at Fleet Steps.

Proposals are now open to be lodged by individuals, organisations, joint ventures or consortia that can demonstrate the necessary food and beverage experience, business skills, commercial acumen and financial capability to manage, operate and realise the maximum potential of these landmark and iconic venues.

Expressions of Interest are now sought for lodgement as part of the Royal Botanic Garden & Domain Trusts’ procurement process. EOI will close on Tuesday 14th November 2017 at 2:00 PM (AEST).
