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 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.

The King of all wedding venues. Everything done for us just as we requested. No fuss. AMAZING food. Beautiful views. All our guests said they had a wonderful time. Owner, James, went above and beyond. All the staff very friendly and professional.

The perfect venue for the perfect day. We had both the ceremony and reception at The Boat House. The garden is a beautiful location for the ceremony - gorgeous views of the lake and lots of trees to ensure guests are comfortable. There is also a lovely indoor option if the weather is bad. The reception venue has spectacular views over the lake. My guests said The Boat House dinner was the best wedding food they'd ever tasted. The service was impeccable. James is extremely knowledgeable and can help with everything from planning the schedule for the day to finding providers. There are also lovely areas surrounding the Boat House for photos. It has everything you need for a spectacular day!
