Welcome to

120 years in the making, and nestled neatly in a native bush setting, with a clubhouse that oozes character and warmth, lies Northcote Bowling Club (Inc).

Northcote Petanque Club also operates out of our premises and have 5 terrains adjacent to the clubhouse. There is pathway access from Church Street, but we are more easily found on google by using 11 Council Terrace, Little Shoal Bay ( if you are using taxis or Uber).

We offer competitive AND social events for bowls, and the same applies with Petanque for boules on the 'Piste'!

Always on the lookout for new members, both Clubs cater for Men and Ladies events, and mixed tournaments as well.  Our reputation as a friendly and welcoming venue to all new members and guests is well known, and tips and advice on how to play are freely offered by the more experienced members at any time. 

If you have the desire to become a competitor at higher levels of the sport, we have regular coaching sessions to start you off in the right direction, and a record of producing  high performing players over many years.

Come in and join us and see for yourself what is special about this Northcote Club.

We have a fully licenced lounge bar, a well equipped kitchen, and a great, well used (and recently upgraded) dance floor. We also have plenty of car parking.

Did we mention the bush setting?

We can accommodate up to 180 guests for private functions, either night time events, or daytime social gatherings involving Bowls, and or Petanque. Whether you are looking to have a wedding, birthday, engagement party, a Corporate event, or just a gathering of friends for a social game or two with perhaps a BBQ and some refreshments, we can organise it all, and for a GREAT price!
