Here are more birthday venue types to consider for your 30th birthday:

Bars and clubs

Sydney’s cocktail bars are the go-to place if you want to celebrate in style. With their upmarket decor, quirky themes and premium cocktails, these venues offer the ideal ambience for a milestone party venue in Sydney.

You can opt for a private booth, where you and your guests can enjoy the comfort of having a personal space to celebrate. If that doesn’t suit your idea of a perfect birthday bash, opt for a more informal venue such as the bar area, where you can dance, drink and get merry with your friends.

A great thing about picking bars and clubs is that they are open all year round and nights are always different. That way you’re never tired of the same old birthday venues!

Parks and gardens

A great option for a 30th birthday party is to hold it in Sydney’s parks and gardens. Not only will you be able to take advantage of the city’s stunning natural scenery, but you can also have your party catered for by a professional team of chefs.

Sydney Botanic Gardens offers an elegant and inspiring setting for your 30th birthday party, with its magnificent flower displays, manicured lawns and tranquil ponds. It has a lot of room to spread out within the grounds so you don’t have to worry about being cramped in one area.

The Royal Botanic Gardens is another great place to hold a 30th birthday party if you’re looking to celebrate in style. The Royal Botanic Sydney Garden offers a variety of options, including the Palmhouse, the Garden Café and Terrace or even the historic Tea House which has magnificent views of Sydney Harbour.

Rooftop pool

What better way to spend a hot summer’s day than lounging by the pool? Pack your bathers and head out for a 30th birthday party held at one of Sydney’s best hotels. What you get is not only a stunning view of the city but also premium drinks, delicious food and professional waiters to serve you and your guests.


For a more intimate party setting, choose a lounge bar. These stylish venues offer you a wide selection of cocktails and drinks whilst providing the perfect environment for socialising. And if you’d rather have space to move around, there are even open-air lounges that give you an exclusive view of the Sydney skyline.

Yachts and boats

If you’re looking for a venue where you can really let loose, having your 30th birthday party on the water is definitely for you. This great venue is perfect to help you celebrate in style, with its impressive interiors and first-class service. Plus, if it’s a clear night, you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Sydney skyline! You'll also be wowed by the views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House and the Central Business District.

What are some good themes for a 30th birthday party?

What better way to celebrate your 30th than with a themed party? And if you choose a good theme, your friends will get into it and have some fun too. Here are a few suggestions to inspire you:

The Casino Night

Serve cocktails such as cosmopolitans or martinis, and have your guests wear suits and fancy dresses with heels. Have at least one table set up with casino games, such as blackjack, poker or other card games.

The Fancy Dress Party

All your guests come dressed in their best outfits and parade around the party as their favourite celebrity or famous person. Just think of all the fun you'll have passing yourself off as an old Hollywood star like Audrey Hepburn or Marilyn Monroe.

When planning your fancy dress party make sure everyone knows what the theme is and make sure your guests bring something to wear to match the theme. Your guests can even provide you with a few costume ideas if you ask them beforehand and maybe give out prizes depending on how good they look!

The '80s Party

If your friends love music, clothes and movies from the '80s then this will be a great theme to choose for your 30th birthday. It's an easy enough theme to plan, and if you don't want to go overboard with your decorations, a few streamers and balloons in the colours of your party's theme are enough to get the job done. Make some "'80s cocktails" such as a cherry cola or add some colourful swizzle sticks to standard drinks like a vodka tonic. And don't forget to ask your guests to come dressed in '80s clothing!
