The building has two function rooms. Upstairs is ‘The Seacliff Room’, the largest and most flexible space. With its open plan, high ceilings, polished wooden floor boards and sweeping views from every window this room is a popular choice for art exhibitions, community events, workshops and yoga classes. There is room for 50 guests seated or 80 standing.
Downstairs is ‘The History Room’, a smaller and more intimate break-out space. The fully equipped kitchen and bathroom have been newly renovated. There is a portable ramp suitable for wheelchair access to the ground floor only.
180 Degree Ocean Views
Clifton School of Arts was the perfect place to hold my 60th birthday party. The location and 180 degree ocean views are stunning, and the Federation building is both elegant and intimate. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a venue for a small to medium function in an unsurpassed location

A Great Call!
Holding my exhibition at Clifton was a good call. The space and abundant natural light is perfect for displaying artwork and the audience loved the building.
Flooded with light!
Flooded with light, with that view of the ocean and the escarpment brought the best of the natural world inside and added a bit of drama.
It has Soul
It has a soul, it has a history of people coming together there for reasons of community and art appreciation and I think that vibe makes itself felt down the ages. You don’t get that from a contemporary box in a suburb.
We hired the building for our wedding and it was fantastic. The location and history of the place made it a very special day. All the help and advice we got from the caretaker Lorelle was very much appreciated!
