Sydney Gala Dinner Venue Hire Guide

A gala dinner or banquet is held to celebrate a special someone (like an award winner) or something (like a milestone event). It's also common for philanthropists and charitable institutions to hold a gala dinner. If you're organising an event as important and sophisticated as this, you need to find the right venue in Sydney.

Sydney CBD

The Sydney CBD has some of the most impressive and historic gala dinner venues that are sure to impress any guest. The city has churches and other historical structures that can be booked for charity dinners and other formal events. St James's Church in King Street, for example, has been used by celebrities for such reasons. The restaurant can seat over 200 guests so it's perfect for a function as grand as a gala dinner.

The Rocks

There are few better places to host a large event like a gala dinner or private function than at the historic and scenic The Rocks. It's a tourist drawcard as well, so it's the perfect place to stage an event that will impress your guests.
