Where can I find the best venues for school balls in Perth?

Perth is known as one of the most vibrant and exciting cities in Australia, with a great collection of restaurants, natural features and facilities for young people to enjoy. Here are some Perth suburbs where you can look for your ideal university ball venue:

Perth CBD

There's little doubt you'll find the perfect venue or space for your party in the city centre. Perth CBD has everything you want. Are you planning an elegant black-tie event? Book a function room or ballroom in one of the city's fancy hotels. Are you having a small gathering and prefer being more casual and relaxed? You can hold your school ball in a restaurant or even a bar.

City Beach

This beautiful beach suburb of Perth is located close to the city centre. With its white-sand beaches and picturesque coastal walks, it's no wonder that City Beach has been the venue of choice for numerous university and corporate events. There are plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars here where you can hold your party as well as HBF Stadium.


Claremont sits on the north bank of the Swan River, which makes it the perfect site for a school ball if you want a nice backdrop for some photo opportunities. The venue options are almost endless — you have everything from restaurants, pubs and function rooms to heritage-listed mansions that are sure to impress your guests.


Fremantle caters to everyone's tastes and offers a variety of venues to choose from. Late-night venues, boutique bars, clubs, cafes, pubs and more are all within proximity of each other on the west end of Fremantle.


Known as one of the most vibrant nighttime precincts of the city, Northbridge is always alive with people and entertainment. A favourite among university students, it's home to some amazing ball venues. The place offers an eclectic mix of bars and restaurants catering to different tastes, as well as unique small venues and spaces for hire.


Subiaco is one of Perth's most prestigious precincts. Its high-end fashion brands, cafes and restaurants attract many visitors from all over the city. The neighbourhood is also home to some of Perth's best hotels, so it's only natural that they're popular venues for university balls.


If you're looking for a school ball venue somewhere north of the CBD, the city of Joondalup is a nice location. The coastal area features some of the most beautiful beachside locations in the city. What's more, Joondalup is home to some great restaurants, bars and nightclubs with live entertainment, so you can have a blast before hitting the dancefloor for your school ball.

Hay Street, Perth CBD

Hay Street in the Perth CBD is the place to look for university ball venues if you want to be in the heart of Perth's CBD. It's lined with nice restaurants, pubs and bars that are perfect for organising your school ball.

What types of university ball venues are the most popular in Perth?

The best types of venues for a university ball depend on many factors like budget and theme. Here are a few that you can choose from:


Hotels are great for school balls since they usually have a ballroom that they rent out for such events. Some of your guests can book rooms if they're coming from faraway places. Most hotels offer a function package that include food and beverage, including staff to serve them.


If your vision for the perfect school ball includes a wonderful dinner with cocktail drinks, restaurants are your best option. Look for one that has space big enough to fit your group. Some restaurants have gardens and outdoor dining spaces that will definitely provide a magical dining experience.

Cafes and pubs

When hosting a ball, cafes and pubs are particularly popular. They're more casual and intimate and perfect for laidback gatherings. Cafes offer delicious food at affordable prices per person whilst pubs have a lighter and more fun atmosphere along with the beverage of your choice.

Boutique venues

For those who want to have a more unique university ball experience, boutique or smaller venues are excellent. They offer young professionals the chance to cater your event at their venue, which ensures you'll get exactly what you're after.

Rooftop venues

The view is always one of the first things people think of when looking for a ball venue, so it's no surprise that rooftop venues are becoming popular in Perth. With stunning views of the city, you can be sure your guests will have an unforgettable experience.

Beachside resorts

Getting away from the city is great for those who don't want to worry about the hustle and bustle of the city centre. There are a number of beautiful seaside resorts and other venues near the water where you can have your school ball.

What are some good Perth university ball themes or ideas?

A theme makes any event more memorable and event planning much easier. Here are some university ball ideas you can choose from:

Black tie

Guests will definitely look forward to a formal school ball where students and teachers put on their fanciest outfits. The men can wear tuxes or suits, but ties are usually not mandatory. The ladies can wear elegant dresses that are comfortable to dance in all night long.

Glitz and glamour

Your guests will be in awe when they see the glitz and glamour of a Perth university ball themed after Hollywood's finest. Put on your fanciest dresses and suits or imitate some stars by wearing sunglasses inside. Make sure to include plenty of entertainment like award shows where guests can win imaginary trophies!

Red carpet affair

If you want to be the talk of the town, go all out with a red carpet themed Perth school ball. Make sure to have professional photographers on hand for guests' red carpet poses. Don't forget the paparazzi, too!

Sports night

Dress up as your favourite sports players or mascots, and play some of the most popular games from the sporting hotbed you come from. Include a few rounds of dodgeball for a little friendly competition if you want to keep things exciting.

Muck up day

There's a good chance that your university ball falls on the school muck up day. Make it a Perth university ball theme and dress as you would for muck up day. Make sure to include all of the necessary components like face paints, smocks, sponge wars and water balloons or water pistols.

Summer carnival

Give your Perth university ball a summer festival vibe with summer carnival themed decorations and outfits. Guests can dress as clowns, animals or all sorts of bright colours and vivid patterns. Make sure to include some fun games like duck racing and the watermelon eating contest!

"Who are you wearing?"

Find creative ways to honour your university's graduating students and provide a creative platform for guests to dress up as their favourite alumni. This is a great way to keep things nostalgic, but not too formal.

Black and white

An easy university ball theme that is always appropriate, black and white themed balls are sleek, sophisticated and great for those who are too busy to put together a fancy costume. Guests will have to dress minimally so the focus stays on your stunning venue choice.


Dress your guests in masquerade-themed outfits and mask for a mysterious, enchanting Perth university ball theme. Or, if you want more freedom to express yourself, make the rules as easy as possible by allowing guests to dress as they please, but suggest some creative black tie alternatives like black bandanas or sunglasses.

Breakfast at Tiffany's

Ladies, this is your chance to dress up as the most iconic of all Hollywood stars: Audrey Hepburn. Lads, gentlemanly black ties are the way to go.

Harry Potter-themed

Go all out on this theme by creating Hogwarts-inspired outfits and decor for Harry Potter lovers. Set up Quidditch hoops in your venue to create some good-natured competition between guests.


Give your Perth university ball a blast from the past with retro-themed decorations and attire. Guests can dress up in their favourite vintage clothes, or get inspired by specific decades like the 1950s or 1980s.
