Function Venues Melbourne FAQs

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

To secure a booking, locking in a function space with 3 months' notice ahead of the event date is a good rule of thumb.

It is important to note that notice needed for bookings depends on the function venue, guest list size and event type. If you're booking a larger event space, the earlier you can book, the better.

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

To ensure you don't miss anything when it comes to booking your event, it is important to prepare a list of must-haves for your event space. This includes deciding if you need private function rooms if you don't want to be interrupted, a private bar for cocktail parties or in-house catering for sit-down dinners.
