Hosting hundreds of garden weddings throughout the year, Fitzroy Gardens is the largest council parklands. Structures used for outdoor ceremonies include The Old Bandstand, The Temple of the Winds, The Dolphin Fountain, and The Conservatory.

One of two obvious crowd favourites, The Old Bandstand demands early application to ensure permit times in the busy season. The ‘fountain end’ is heavily shaded, and the ‘cafe end’ accommodates larger ceremonies.

There are a variety of landscape options when considering booking the other favourite — The Dolphin Fountain. This area allows for larger numbers, and offers lush native backdrops, big old Elm Trees, and the paved pathway to the fountain itself as ceremony location.

Decorations must not be attached to any flora, statures, or heritage-listed sites. With rubbish bins available, and Council Rangers on patrol in the general area, the Fitzroy Gardens must be left how they were found. Public toilets are located on the outskirts of the gardens, and refreshments are on offer at the cafe.
