The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney

The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney is one of the largest botanical gardens in the world and it's home to thousands of plants and trees on over 158 acres of property. In certain seasons, you can see peaches, wisteria, and lotus flowers blossom here. The gardens are a stunning setting for bronzes and sculptures by the likes of Bronwyn Oliver, Keld Moseholm, and Paul Selwood. We also have the quartz-and-sandstone Wurrungwuri that depicts an Aboriginal shield once used by the traditional owners of this land. Whether you're looking for a unique wedding venue, a beautiful corporate team-building event space or a stunning location for your next launch party, the venue's team can help you make your vision a reality. The Garden is a beautiful venue for events of all sizes. It has a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces that can be shaped to fit the needs of your group. Our staff members are trained in the art of hosting weddings, product launches, fashion parades, team building workshops and conferences. If you're looking for a unique venue close to the Sydney CBD, we offer a lush garden setting with spectacular views of the harbour. The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney and the Domain are managed by the Botanic Gardens and Centennial Parklands (BGCP). These picturesque, harbourside venues provide a stunning backdrop for events to showcase Australia's magnificent natural environment and offer event producers an inspiring venue to host their next big event.
