What makes a great party venue?

Before anything else, one may ask what makes a venue party great?

When it comes to party venues, there are a number of factors that you may want to keep in mind to find the perfect place for you.

Venue Size

Firstly, you might want to look at the kind of event space available- whether it is an indoor or outdoor venue. What kind of group is going to attend your party? If it is a large group, then you might need something with a lot of space. If it is a smaller group, then you can consider a smaller venue. A party venue should be able to accommodate the number of guests that you want to invite and take note that in some cases, the total capacity of your event will also depend on whether or not the place is licensed for alcohol consumption as well. 

Size also includes how many rooms are available for your party- do they have an outdoor patio or balcony? Do they offer areas where the guests can mingle and socialise? Are there enough indoor areas that groups can split up and enjoy themselves without worrying about others?

Venue Type

Venues can be classified in a number of ways- whether it is an indoor or outdoor venue, whether it has a dance floor, the amount of seating available etc.  Also do not forget about the theme you wish to have for your birthday party - as some venues are more suitable than others.

For example, do you have kids as your guests? Then you might want to consider a venue that has lots of space for them to run around and play, something that is not too crowded. You might want to consider also a venue that has activities they can enjoy, like a bouncy castle or a play room.

You might also want to take into consideration using an existing venue that has a theme that you already like- if your ideal birthday party is one with a gold and purple theme, then you can use this as the basis of how your party will look.


Accessibility involves how far away is it from public transport, how easy will it be for people to get there? What kind of parking is available for the guests? These are just some of the questions to ask yourself when choosing a place. For sure you would want your guests to get to your party safely and hassle-free!


Lastly, set your budget. Find out how much each venue costs by inquiring ahead of time- and be sure to make comparisons. Do not forget to factor in things like food and drinks - as you will want to make sure that the food is high quality! You also want to consider the limit of your budget and cater to that- after all, it is your party!

Where can I celebrate my birthday in Canberra?

Looking for a birthday party venue in Canberra? There are lots of places to choose from. To make life easier for you, we have provided a list of some of the neighbourhoods to consider for your bookings.

North Canberra

If you are searching for something a little more lively then head on over to North Canberra. The Civic Centre is just one of many locations in which you can hold a birthday party. It possesses all the amenities that you could possibly need, including an auditorium with catering facilities and toilets; these are naturally very clean and modern!

If you are looking for something a little different then Braddon is a lovely area to consider. Located in North Canberra, it has many nice restaurants and cafés that you can choose from when planning your birthday party. Many of the places there offer outdoor dining as well which would be perfect during the warmer months.

South Canberra

If you want to have your birthday party at a place that is close to the city and also has a very beautiful outlook then head on over to South Canberra. The Old Parliament House has a lot of options for hosting birthday parties, from small ones in one of the meeting rooms or larger celebrations in some of the banquet rooms. These are located in the museum, which is situated in the original Parliamentary Chambers and you can also hire the catering facilities from there.

If you're looking for something more traditional, not to worry! South Canberra also has a lot of beautiful, older buildings that have been turned into restaurants and cafés. One of these is the National Museum of Australia building, which has got traditional décor- you could even dress up to match the theme!

Central Belconnen

Belconnen is one of the most central suburbs in Canberra, which makes it an ideal location for your event. Belconnen offers a lot of historic sites which are very elegant and interesting to be in- it would make your event more memorable if you held it there.

If you want to have your party during summer for example, then head on over to the National Arboretum. The National Arboretum is not only a great place to hold your birthday party but also the ideal venue if you want to have a wedding or any other type of celebration. It has plenty of seating, amazing views and even an outdoor barbecue area for guests to enjoy their meal!

West Belconnen

If you want to have your party in a region that is close to nature then head on over to West Belconnen. This suburb has a lot of restaurants that are close to nature and have a relaxing feel. There is also the option of having your party at one of the largest family-friendly parks in Australia - The playgrounds here are varied and there is plenty for children to do!

The Ngunnawal Park has many places that are great for birthday parties, including the outdoor amphitheatre which is perfect during the warmer months. There are also some wonderful facilities like picnic tables and BBQs! The area can also be ideal if you want something that is less formal. Cafes and restaurants are close by, including the Banyan Tree Café within Ngunnawal Park.

Both of these areas offer fun, safe surroundings that you will want your family and friends to enjoy!

Central Woden

If you are looking for a venue that offers a bit more of a modern feel to your party then head on over to Woden. Many great restaurants, pubs and shopping centres are located here, including the Majura Park Shopping Centre with its three level carpark, the Woden Town Centre and also the Canberra Glassworks. Many of these venues also offer banquet facilities, so this shouldn't be a problem if you want your birthday party to be a bit bigger.

North Tuggeranong

For a more authentic country feel (without having to travel far) then head on over to North Tuggeranong. It is situated in the north east of Canberra and has a lot of great stores, cafes and restaurants. Some of the places there are also very close to nature, making it a unique experience.

Canberra City

If you are looking for a venue that is close to the Canberra city centre but with more of a modern feel, there are restaurants, pubs and shopping centres nearby, as well as many great places to hold your party.

Birthday Party Venues in Canberra

Canberra is known for its abundance of parks, bush walks and sporting facilities. So if you are looking for a birthday party venue in Canberra, then the answer could be right under your nose.

We listed 10 venue ideas to get you started on planning the perfect birthday party within Canberra:

Canberra Botanical Gardens

For those who love nature then what could be better than a birthday party at the botanical gardens. The entire park is laid out so that you can organise your own birthday party anywhere in the huge area- from the fern allée to outdoor concerts on the banks of lake Burley Griffin. You could even have a picnic if preferred or enjoy some delicious coffee and cake at a cafe in the gardens. Moreover, whenever you visit the Botanical Gardens, you will be reminded that our natural world is beautiful and timeless.

Aspen Island

If you are looking for somewhere with a little more history and character then head over to Aspen Island in Commonwealth Park as this place has a lot of appeal for kids. There's plenty of room to run around, which is always a good thing when it comes to birthday parties.

It's also very easy to find Aspen Island since it is right next door to the Canberra Glassworks in Commonwealth Park. This means that you can enjoy more than one venue at your party or perhaps begin with a visit to the glassworks and then onto Aspen Island for a barbecue lunch.

Kambah Pool

Rather than going to one of the many restaurants in Canberra, why not take your guests swimming?

Kambah Pool is open until 8pm so you can all go swimming after eating at the venue or even before. You can get one of the indoor pools or even the outdoor pool if you feel that it might be better. The only thing that you need to remember when booking this venue is that your guests will need to come with towels and some extra clothes!

Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve

If you are looking for something a little bit different, then Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve is an excellent idea. There are plenty of insects and reptiles that your guests can learn about at the interactive area as well as places to have picnics or barbecues. In the reserve, there is always something interesting to see and explore.

Majura Park Centre

Majura Park Centre is another great venue for birthday parties in Canberra. This park offers a range of different facilities and you can even book them out yourself; the perfect way to guarantee that you will have enough room for your party. Mark Park Centre is very close to Woden Town Centre and it has a lot of parking, making it very accessible to you and your guests.

Lake Burley Griffin

Lake Burley Griffin is Canberra's most prominent water feature, and you can take advantage of this by getting a venue that overlooks it. These venues are perfect for taking lots of photographs to commemorate your special day. However, when looking for a venue overlooking Lake Burley Griffin, you do need to ensure that there is enough space for all of your guests.

The Yacht Club

If you are looking for something a little bit grander, then perhaps The Yacht Club is the perfect venue. With its glittering chandeliers and high ceilings, it is reminiscent of an old time grand ballroom and offers a bit more glamour than some of the other venues in Canberra.

Lake Tuggeranong Marina

Lake Tuggeranong Marina allows you to cruise your boat into the marina for a party at the venue in your own boat – perhaps not quite how you would imagine a Canberra birthday party, but it is a great option. This means that if you have your own boat then you can simply sail over to the marina and enjoy an afternoon of celebration on board with family and friends. It is also possible to hire one of the boats there.

The Rooftop at The Westin Hotel, Canberra

Imagine having a cocktail party on the rooftop of a five-star hotel with ease and elegance. This is just what you can get when you pull off your next birthday celebration in this amazing venue. You and your family and friends can enjoy the luxury of this five-star hotel whilst taking in views of Australia's national capital.

Balthazaar, Canberra

Located in the heart of Canberra's vibrant city on London Circuit, Balthazaar offers a perfect mix of entertainment options to suit all your party needs. Dine on delicious food such as pizza, pasta, salads, steaks, seafood or an array of desserts at Balthazaar Restaurant. Relax in style with friends and family over drinks at The Lounge Bar. This venue definitely has something for everyone!
