Regional Function and Conference Venues NSW FAQs

How far in advance should I book a Regional NSW function venue?

Locking in a function space with 3 months' notice before the event date is good practice to secure a booking. It is important to note that notice may be needed for certain bookings depending 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 venue?

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, a private bar for cocktail parties or in-house catering for sit-down dinners.
