Choose from two contemporary yet elegant wedding reception venues. These beautiful and unique spaces will impress guests.

The Great Hall is a large capacity event space famous for its high, stunning stained glass ceiling by Leonard French, and a perfect venue for large dinners and cocktail receptions. Pre-dinner drinks can be held in Federation Court, beneath the expansive glass ceiling or on the terrace overlooking the Grollo Equiset Garden, home to some of the Gallery’s most impressive sculptures.

For a more intimate celebration, the Garden Restaurant transforms from a highly-regarded restaurant by day to a contemporary venue for wedding dinners and cocktail receptions by night. Overlooking the magnificent gardens, The Garden Restaurant is framed by a backdrop of the city skyline, creating an artistic and stylish setting. A private entrance boasts a romantic boardwalk from the gate to the venue’s entrance while the gardens provide the perfect location for pre-dinner drinks.

Please note, we are unable to host wedding ceremonies at this venue, but our team are happy to assist you in planning your perfect reception.

Note: capacities may change depending on artwork installations. NGV venues may be hired for private events only.
