New Venues Launch in Sydney's Iconic Royal Botanic Garden

Here at Event Birdie, one thing that gets us really excited is a new venue. Well, we are tickled pink because we have not one, but two amazing new venues!

Sitting pretty on the edge of Sydney's world-renowned harbour, the Royal Botanic Garden is home to these two impressive spaces. A favourite destination for locals and tourists alike, the spectacular Sydney Royal Botanic Garden offers something for everyone. Come for a special event, community festival, stroll by the iconic harbour or explore the colourful surroundings.

Nestled at the heart of the gardens you will find the newly refurbished Botanic House – formerly Botanic Gardens Restaurant; and Terrace on the Domain - formerly The Pavilion. The same beautiful locations have been given a fresh new face. Trippas White Group are at the helm behind this world-class dining experience in two incredible event spaces.

Botanic House

Botanic House is situated in the centre of the gardens and, although only minutes from the CBD and public transport, this venue is a hidden oasis. Available for exclusive hire, the venue boasts open-air dining with luxurious garden views. The new fit-out offers an expansive open-plan design, including high glass windows that fill the space with natural light and immerse you in the lush surrounds. Outside, you will find a front deck area that is perfect for arrival drinks and canapes. The space has been thoughtfully designed to take full advantage of its unique location.

The venue comfortably caters to 300 for a cocktail style event, 150 guests for a seated meal or 120 guests if you want to include a dancefloor. Ambassador Chef Luke Nguyen has specially designed the event menus, and his commitment to fresh, local produce is reflected in the dishes created.

That isn't all: downstairs at Botanic House is the Farm Cove Eatery, an additional space that is available for intimate events and progressive events as well as pre-dinner drinks and canapes. The Farm Cove Eatery is also perfect as a wet weather wedding ceremony option. The eatery can accommodate 100 guests for a cocktail event or 50 seated guests.

Terrace on the Domain

Terrace on the Domain is located on the Gardens' tourist trail adjacent to the Art Gallery of NSW. Despite being on the fringe of the eastern suburbs, only moments from the CBD and public transport, this venue sits in an intimate garden atmosphere, a peaceful hub in the vibrant city.

The contemporary open-plan design brims with modern features, vast glass windows, and overhead circular skylights flood the space with natural light and blur the lines between outside and in. The sweeping terrace and lawn are perfect places to soak up garden surroundings with stunning views of the city skyline.

The venue can cater for 350 guests for a cocktail event, 180 guests for a seated meal or 140 guests with a dancefloor. The venue offers a casual bar and dining experience with bespoke menus, grazing stations and unlike most inner-city venues, features onsite parking. Terrace on the Domain is a modern event space unlike any other.

Our Verdict

These venues are distinct in their design, inhabit a heritage-listed harbourside garden and have been lovingly reinvented. Trippas White Group are synonymous with premium venues and event experiences. Botanic House and Terrace on the Domain join an illustrious list of iconic venues, including Sydney Opera House, The Calyx, STUDIO Sydney Tower and The Avalon on the Beach, to name a few.

Both of these newly refreshed venues are ideal for weddings, intimate events, corporate occasions, product and media events, and private parties. They are now open and available for your next event.
