Canberra Meeting Venue Hire Guide

Canberra is one the of leading business centres in Australia and, as such, has nearly endless venues for meetings. Whether it's a small business meeting or a large corporate event, there are plenty of different meeting rooms and corporate venues to choose from in Canberra.

Where in Canberra ACT will I find good meeting and conference rooms?

These are the types of meeting rooms and conference rooms you'll find in Canberra ACT neighbourhoods:

Civic (Canberra CBD)

The city centre is home to many of the best business meeting rooms. That's because it's close to all the government departments and offices and is close enough for people living in other Canberra suburbs to commute easily. These are also good locations due to their proximity to restaurants, cafes and shops. A lot of large corporations have their headquarters here too, including Telstra, Westpac Bank, Optus and ASX.

Civic (Canberra CBD) has lots of great activities and attractions nearby that help generate discussion amongst team members or delegates. You can even get out into nature at Acton Peninsula Reserve or Lake Burley Griffin Boat Harbour.

Inner North (New Acton, Gungahlin)

The inner north of Canberra is a mix of business and residential. It has some great meeting venues that are perfect for smaller conferences and corporate events. There are also restaurants and cafes nearby to catch a meal between meetings or discussions.

Outer North (Belconnen, Tuggeranong)

The outer north is the commercial centre of Canberra ACT. You'll find plenty of big businesses here, including Holden, NAB, Caltex and IBM. It's divided into two areas by Lake Tuggeranong — Belconnen in the east and Weston Creek in the west. Both have good facilities for conferences, large gatherings or other types of business meetings. The area around Belconnen Town Centre is the best for hotels, restaurants and shops.

Barton (Kingston, Manuka, Griffith)

Barton is the southernmost suburb of Canberra and is home to many government departments and offices. It's also where you'll find the Australian National University. As a result, it has plenty of good meeting rooms for business events, conferences or other large gatherings.

There are plenty of other suburbs that have smaller business meeting venues, including Chapman, Gungahlin, Fyshwick, Lyneham and Woden Canberra.

What types of Canberra meeting rooms are the most popular?

These are some of the best types of venues for meetings and other corporate events in Canberra:

Hotel meeting rooms

Hotel meeting rooms provide an intimate setting for meetings and events. They are the perfect space for small groups and especially good for strategic planning sessions or client entertaining.

Conference centres

Hotel conference centres offer extensive facilities, often including large ballrooms, boardrooms and exhibition spaces to enable multiple functions to be held simultaneously. This means that they can cater for larger corporate events such as training seminars, networking functions and conferences.


Restaurants are great for social and networking events or even just a simple business lunch. They provide a unique, casual setting for individuals to meet up and discuss new business ideas over drinks and food.

Local Canberra bars

For those who prefer an informal gathering, local Canberra bars offer novel options such as beer gardens to soak up some rays in the summertime or comfy lounge settings when it's cooler. Bars also often have entertainment on the weekends, which means that they can be used not only as meeting rooms but also for team building activities or birthday parties!

Function centres

An alternative to hotels, function centres provide more of an event focused environment rather than rooms simply designed to accommodate individual meetings. They generally require larger catering orders compared with hotels, but there are more options available and they often come with entertainment, from live music to comedians. They're also spaces that can be highly customised, allowing for corporate branding or decorations.

Coworking spaces

Coworking spaces are a relatively new option for businesses in need of meeting room space. They provide members with access to modern, collaborative workspaces complete with the latest technology. This type of venue is perfect for start-ups, small businesses or freelancers who need a flexible and affordable work environment. You can book these venues for half-day or full-day use, and some even offer hourly rates.


Cafes make great meeting rooms for small groups, especially if you just need a space to catch up over coffee. They provide a relaxed and comfortable setting, and there are often food and drink options available if you need to refuel during or after your meeting.


Boardrooms are a traditional meeting room option that is still popular for board meetings and training sessions. They are usually located within an office building or a corporate setting, and they come equipped with all the necessary technology and facilities.
