WINNER - BEST WEDDING VENUE ACT A reputation built on an award winning kitchen and service, and restaurant food and service.


For couples looking for restaurant food and service at their wedding...

Minutes from the city yet set in its own gardens on the absolute lakefront of Lake Burley Griffin, the Boat House by the Lake is Canberra’s ultimate wedding venue. With a reputation built on its award winning kitchen and unsurpassed service, a wedding reception held here will be one to remember.

The Boat House also runs as an award winning fine dining restaurant, and the same kitchen and service term will also look after your special day.
Whether you are after a lakeside garden wedding, a relaxed reception with sumptuous canapes, or a more formal dining affair, the Boat House’s stunning water views and sophisticated atmosphere make it a unique setting for family and friends to celebrate your special day.

Our three function rooms are superbly presented with crisp white linen, crystal glassware and direct access to a lakeside deck and gardens. The atmosphere is further enhanced by floor to ceiling windows and a crackling open fire in the West End Room during the winter months.

The Boat House is equipped to handle both small and large weddings of up to 140-160 seated or 250-300 cocktail, with ample free parking on the doorstep.

Just beautiful and perfect! They had just finished renovating and we were able to be one of the first to enjoy everything. The food was delicious and looked amazing. All our guests had a wonderful time. We had some specific things that we wanted in the room which we supplied them with and they were very happy to accommodate this. We also negotiated a minimum spend as we had a winter wedding which really helped.

The Boat House was the perfect location for our wedding. Situated down by Lake Burly Griffin, the lake was the perfect back drop. We couldn't have been happier with the service and food.

The event director - James was 120% helpful to plan the day absolutely amazing. The preparation was the most stressful period and James made our life easier for every single step. All the staffs are very friendly on the wedding day as well. The venue was very beautiful located beside the lake. Highly recommended.
