The Terrace Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne Corporate Functions & Events
Finding an inspiring venue for a corporate event can be difficult, especially if your team is based in the bustling CBD. Though Melbourne is a beautiful city, it’s nice to treat your staff and colleagues to a change of scenery, especially if it’s an easily accessible outdoor location.
Nestled within the nationally-revered Royal Botanic Gardens, The Terrace is perfectly suited to host corporate events and functions. This blank canvas space is flexible in its arrangement and decor, meaning you have total control over the way the room will look and feel when it comes to event day.
Floor-to-ceiling windows allow plenty of natural light in, and theatre-style or cabaret seating allows your colleagues to gather for presentations, seminars, workshops, gala evenings, Christmas parties, or awards ceremonies. The Terrace has in-house AV equipment and WiFi, so check your requirements with the events team.
Out on the terrace, your staff can grab some fresh air and a bite to eat as they overlook the peaceful Ornamental Lake, home to an abundance of native wildlife. For team-building activities, it’s not hard to find a suitable location in the gardens; there are several lawns and gardens that can be easily located on a map.
The executive chef tailors catering to your preferences. Planning a day of activities, planning sessions, and team-building exercises, or you’re keen on a relaxing lunch or elegant dinner to celebrate your team’s success? The catering team create personalised menus to ensure your staff are kept satisfied and ready to enjoy the event.

The venue was beautiful and the food was amazing. The communication was really great. We were able to go in and set things up a few days before the wedding which we found really helpful. There were lots of different options on how we could set up the room which was great.
