Event Terrace and Gallery of Gardens


From a bespoke gathering to a large outdoor event, the intimate setting of the landscape Gallery of Gardens to the expansive grassy Events Terrace, both outdoor venues offer sensational views across Canberra and a perfect place for your event.

What is the Gallery of Gardens? A series of seven gardens, each with distinctive story and design, with a variety of landscape features and functional spaces for guests to enjoy. Power and potable water are available for each garden, and some spaces can accommodate a small marquee, making these stunning gardens a flexible venue for private events and gatherings.

The flat grassy Event Terrace is suitable for private or commercial events for up to 1500 people.
