Weddings and special occasions – Geelong Botanic Gardens

The Geelong Botanic Gardens is a beautiful venue for your special occasion.

With peaceful lawns surrounded by breathtaking gardens, it’s the perfect space for small, low-key ceremonies, including weddings and naming ceremonies.

To care for this special place, we only book one event at a time, so please contact us to check our availability.

Weddings and commitment ceremonies

Whether you are planning an intimate occasion, or want to invite your 150 closest friends and family, there are a range of areas to suit most ceremonies and low fees that are guaranteed to suit every budget.

Your booking will give you exclusive access to your preferred area for two hours, allowing plenty of time to set-up and pack-up. You can also take photos anywhere you like in the gardens.

Once the ceremony is over and the photos are done, there are plenty of places in nearby Central Geelong to host your post-ceremony celebration.

Other special occasions

If you’re planning a small, low-impact event, the Geelong Botanic Gardens is the perfect outdoor venue.

While bookings are required if you wish to reserve a particular lawn area, group picnics and family gatherings (without furniture) are welcome any time.

Unfortunately, we don’t host birthday parties at Geelong Botanic Gardens unless the party is for young children.
