The guys at the Arboretum were very helpful. Responded to enquiries no matter how trivial and were professional all throughout.

Such a stunning venue, I can't imagine wanting my wedding to be anywhere else. The Arboretum has a lot of information to fill out, but it is worth the work. I dealt with Kathleen and she is really approachable. I emailed her dozens of questions while I was preparing and she always got back to me quickly. It was beautiful on the day, all of the catering ran smoothly (AND WAS DELICIOUS), and the staff were really professional. I am absolutely satisfied that I had the best venue in Canberra. The only thing that annoyed me was that they tried to get me to pay to extend my drinks package earlier, and to pay $5 per person for coffee. I chose not to pay for these, and then they included them for free. They presented it like a gift, but it made me question if I had paid for other items that I would have gotten for free.

We had our ceremony at the Margaret Whitlam Pavilion and our reception in the Village Centre. Service, food and views were all fantastic! Kathleen from Ginger Catering went above and beyond to help us plan our dream wedding!

Dairy Farmers Hill Lookout was our chosen ceremony venue and we couldn't have picked a better place. Beautiful view, shade, easy to access, comfortable and most of all romantic and welcoming. Josua & Elena

It was a beautiful place, very scenic. There was a lot of paperwork, but everything was worth it, and it was pretty easy to do! We had a morning ceremony here, it was really lovely overall!

A little more our rehearsal the guy didn't even introduce himself so we kind of had to figure it all out ourselves. But it was a beautiful venue and not TOO expensive.

The Margaret Whitlam Pavilion is such a magical place! Stunning backdrop of Canberra and the lake and gorgeous architecture. When we were doing the rehearsal, there was even a parrot singing along on the balcony. The staff were all incredibly accommodating on the day and we had the best time!

Fantastic venue. The views over Canberra were amazing and the food and drink delicious. We had both our ceremony and reception at the NAC and were extremely happy with the smooth way everything ran on the day plus all the assistance in the lead up/planning stages..

The Margaret Whitlam Pavilion was amazing for our ceremony and reception with amazing views and great catering packages at a reasonable price. Our quests were at awe of the venue. Would recommend the Pavilion for a wedding.

The service provided by Ginger Catering was better than I could have hoped for! The staff were professional and very friendly. The event coordinators I spoke with were AMAZING! In the end, they knew more about my wedding than I did! The food was delicious and generous!
