Sydney Venue Styles You’ll Love

First and foremost, Sydney is known for its glistening blue harbour. As such, it’s no surprise that some of the city’s most popular venues for events are its waterfront venues and rooftop venues. There’s a relaxed atmosphere at many of Sydney’s social event venues, like cottages that have been turned into restaurants, urban wineries, and beautiful outdoor gardens. 

Luxury hotel venues are quite popular for corporate events in Sydney as well as for wedding groups. Many of these hotels are located on Sydney Harbour, offering gorgeous views of the water from the event spaces and guest suites.

Formal events and luxury wedding venues in Sydney range widely, and some of the many local styles include heritage mansions and ballrooms, beautiful museum spaces, and spectacular event halls.

Booking Sydney Hotel Room Blocks

Not every event requires hotel bookings, but if you have a list of ten or more guests travelling to Sydney from out of town, we usually recommend booking a block of rooms for your group. Depending on the size of your guest list, it might even make sense to book group room blocks at more than one hotel. Whatever the case, our Venue Specialists can help you navigate this process and get you set up with comfortable accommodation for your group.

Setting a Budget for Your Sydney Event

There’s no one-price-fits-all approach to event planning, but setting a budget from the start is a great way to help you hone in on your venue and rule a few options out. Generally speaking, daytime weekday events are always going to be more affordable than evening weekend events. 

The actual pricing set by your Sydney event venue can range significantly depending on the date of your event, the time of day, and the scope of what you’re planning. We’ve seen short daytime events that are priced as low as $35/guest, and we’ve seen budgets of $350 or more per guest for full-day events and weddings.

Creating a budget and sticking to it is one of the more challenging aspects of planning an event. That’s why we’re committed to being transparent with pricing and sending you quotes from venues that fit into the budget you’ve set.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which Sydney suburb is best suited for events?

So many areas of Sydney are popular for different reasons. Here are some of our top picks for Sydney event venue destinations.

  • Sydney CBD is an obvious choice for many event planners, as the vast majority of luxury hotels, famous restaurants, and tourist attractions are located in the heart of the city. Sydney’s also a very walkable city, so if you’re planning an event that’ll take place over multiple days, being in the CBD has big perks for accessibility. In this case, we’d suggest taking a look at venues that offer nearby transport options.
  • Corporate event planners often look for venues with close proximity to local parks and refreshing outdoor spaces so that their guests can take advantage of the breaks they have throughout the day. Botanic Gardens and Domain Sydney, Sydney Harbour, Hyde Park, Centennial Park, and Bondi Beach are all fantastic break destinations during a local event.
  • Hosts of social gatherings typically like to coordinate their events in an area that’s known for its stylish bars and restaurants so that guests can enjoy the scene following their celebration. Paddington, Manly, Bondi Beach, Darlinghurst, and The Rocks are just a few of Sydney’s most popular suburbs for dining and entertainment.
  • Most Sydney event hosts want nothing more than to be on the waterfront, sipping fabulous wine, and chatting up guests as they soak in the view. If that’s the kind of host you see yourself as, event spaces in Mosman, Rose Bay, and Watsons Bay should be at the top of your list.
