10 function spaces for your next event – from blank space to luxe

Posted on

A special event calls for a special venue – and we’ve found 10 of them.

From baby showers to birthdays, and corporate functions to cocktails, plenty of great places in Canberra can help you host your next big event.

All here to help the exciting (and stressful) process become as easy as possible, whether you want a blank space venue where you can do everything yourself or a location that offers event packages so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the day, here are 10 function spaces to consider booking.

Let’s get this party started!

For when you need a little something extra…

59 Cameron Avenue Conference and Event Centre

Located on the top floor of Mercure Canberra Belconnen, this new venue has six spaces to choose from – perfect for small meetings or a special gathering of up to 400 people.

With stunning views of Lake Ginninderra and the Brindabellas, each event space has everything you could need. An example? The Ginninderra not only has sweeping views of the lake but also is equipped with three data projectors and drop-down screens (as well as high-speed Wi-Fi) while the Kamberri can accommodate up to 400 people theatre-style.

And with a dedicated team who is there to help you plan the perfect event with a customisable package, booking here is ideal for when you just want to sit back and let everything run smoothly. Did we mention the onsite catering team?

For when you want a blank space venue…

The Common CBR

With neutral wood flooring, floor-to-ceiling windows with elegant black frames, high ceilings, and white walls (as well as a stunning outdoor courtyard complete with lush greenery and festoon lighting), it’s not hard to imagine waltzing in with decorations in hand to make this Pinterest-worthy venue your own.

With the ability to cater for a total of 150 guests (if you choose the addition of the lush outdoor courtyard), The Common is anything but, well, common. The best part? It’s right in the heart of the city.
