About Australian Venue Co.

About Australian Venue Co.

Australian Venue Co (AVC) is a world-class hospitality group that has grown rapidly from 5 venues in 2014 to more than 150 venues in 2019. We are passionate about delivering exceptional customer experiences across a national portfolio of restaurants, bars, pubs and dedicated event spaces.

We know good times, in all its shapes and forms. Across our venues, we’ve got the perfect place for our customers for nearly every occasion. Whether you’re watching the game with the gang at The Duke, knocking off at The Aviary’s rooftop after a day in the office, catching up for Sunday lunch with the whole family at The Regatta or letting your hair down on a big night at Bungalow8, we’ve got the spot for you.

We don’t cut and paste across our venues. We see the unique potential in each pub, bar or restaurant and make it shine. We do this by building passionate & highly skilled teams that deliver exceptional service, implementing best practice operations and always pushing the envelope to create amazing experiences for our customers.

The only clue that the venue you’re in is part of a bigger family is the Australian Venue Co app, a mobile payment app you can use to earn points at AVC venues across Australia.

Our Vision

We build, grow and reinvent world-class venues for every occasion – from your neighbourhood local where the bartender knows your name and your favourite brew, to the special spots where you celebrate life’s big moments, to the insider favourites where the good times roll and the surprises keep coming.

At the heart of it all, we bring people together every day. Our venues are the place you come to with old friends, and where you make new ones. We set the tone for the industry and inspire imitations, but we’ve always got our sights set on the next milestone for best practice operations so we can keep delivering world-class experiences.

Learn about our leaders


AVC is committed to giving back to the communities that we operate in. At an individual venue level, our venues are regularly donating to local schools, sports teams and charity events and finding ways to get involved in the community.

At a group level, AVC is engaging with key charity partners that we can provide significant support to. We are growing our Corporate Social Responsibility Program and are currently seeking a national charity partner who we can support across all of our venues.
