Areas available for hire – Geelong Botanic Gardens
The Geelong Botanic Gardens has a few different areas that can be booked.
When choosing the right for your occasion, we encourage you to consider:
How many people will attend your event?
We have areas that will hold up to 50, 100 or 150 people standing
How far your guests will need to walk from the main entrance?
If any of your guests have mobility issues, you might want to choose an area that's closer to the main gate.
What time of year will you be hosting your event?
The garden looks different every season, so it's a good idea to visit at the time of year you expect to be hosting your event.
If time doesn't allow for this, consider booking the space and then re-visiting closer to your proposed date.
