    Brisbane Event Venue Styles You’ll Love

    Brisbane River sets the scene for this city’s beautiful, meandering feel. It’s a common backdrop for event spaces throughout central Brisbane, and the first view you’ll be taken by upon arrival. In fact, most of the city’s 5-star hotels and social or corporate event spaces overlook Brisbane River.


    Events here range widely in terms of the vibe, from the posh urban atmosphere of a party venue in the CBD to a sunny outdoor garden venue in Fortitude Valley. There’s really something for every type and style of event you’re planning.


    For an event that feels somewhat removed from the city, many couples head just an hour away to the Gold Coast for wedding venues that have a getaway feel. Heading to winery wedding venues in the Queensland Zone wine region is also a gorgeous option.

    Brisbane Venue Hire Fees at Private Event Venues

    Each event space will have its own pricing structure and requirements. While many Brisbane venues work on a per-person minimum spend if they offer catering in-house, there are also many no minimum spend venues that instead charge a hire fee or allow semi-private use of a space.


    If you’re planning an event on a budget, a daytime event on a weekday is almost always going to be the most affordable option, while busy weekend nights will usually require higher minimum spends and more strict timing options.

    Hotel event venues are often great options for social and corporate gatherings because they tend to offer a wide range of catering options for different budgets and event types. For social events like birthdays and engagement parties, restaurant venues with semi-private cocktail areas are great options to start your search.
