Sydney Venue hire FAQ's

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

How far you'll need to book your Sydney 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.

For corporate events and private events, booking at least 3 months ahead of the event date is a good rule of thumb.

What should I check for when choosing the perfect venue?

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, a rooftop bar for the ultimate private party in the Sydney CBD.

How many people can fit into a venue?

While most Sydney venues will be able to guide and help you manage capacity for your upcoming private party or corporate event, you can make your own calculations to be sure. As a general rule, you'll want to have 2-4 square meters per person, but remember that seating style and layout can affect capacity, so speak to your venue operator to be sure.

Does location matter for Sydney venues?

Location is one of the most important factors when choosing between different event venues. You might want to be near Sydney Harbour so that you can enjoy the breathtaking views of Sydney's CBD and the Sydney Harbour. Or you might consider smaller spaces in Sydney's northern beaches for a more intimate affair. Throughout Sydney, NSW, there are plenty of popular event spaces that each offer something great for your next function.
