Montage Celebrates its 25th Anniversary

For 25 years, the mission of Montage Sydney has been to offer mystical and elegant venues with unique event spaces that create the magic you’re looking for, from ambience to nature.

With venues rising around every corner, Navarra Venues is still as committed to our mission now as we were when Filippo Navarra started our company’s journey back in 1973, and we’re getting better at it every day.

What has Montage been up to for the past few years? Here’s a glamourous snapshot of what’s been going on in the 25th year of our existence.

Let’s Look Back to Montage’s History

Montage is one of the six venues developed by Navarra, with the development of new venues occurring every now and then. Born in Sicily, Navarra’s journey began in 1965 when Filippo Navarra left for Australia with a dream and vision in his head. With 47 years in the hospitality industry, Navarra Venues has hosted over 100,000 special occasions and events, served around 50 million drinks to all its visitors and catered to about 8 million guests.

In 1996, the jewel of the Navarra Venues collection was established, and the famous sports club Apia Club was purchased. With their vision in mind and pushing them forward, Brother Sal & Giovannino Navarra, along with sister Marie Florio, worked on developing the infamous waterfront oasis, setting high standards in Sydney, which is still recognised even in today’s hospitality industry.
