Canberra Function Venues FAQs

How far in advance should I book a Canberra function venue?

Booking at least 3 months ahead of the event date is a good rule of thumb. How far you'll need to book your function venue in advance will depend on the type of event and how many guests you expect. If you're booking a larger event space, the earlier you can book, the better.

What should I check for when choosing the perfect venue in Canberra?

It's good to have a list of must-haves for your event space. Things like versatile spaces that can suit your specific needs, private function rooms if you don't want to be interrupted, a private bar for cocktail parties, in-house catering for sit-down dinners, and so on. Have a few search criteria in mind, that way it'll be easier to find the right venue that suits your needs.
