Gala dinner venues in Sydney often have a minimum spend requirement. The cost of the minimum spend varies and depends on the venue's size, its location (for example whether it is in the city’s popular neighbourhoods, along the harbour, or even on a yacht) and the time of day you intend to hire the gala dinner venue. A nighttime event may cost you a few thousand dollars more than a daytime one, because of the higher demand for evening events. You should budget at least $3500 and up to $6500 or higher for a daytime hire. Expect to pay anything from $4000 to $10000 or more for an evening gala. Some venues will offer a minimum spend option per session, with prices ranging from $1000 to $4000 or more. The hire fees can be billed at hourly, half-day, full-day, or evening rates. The hire fees per session might be anywhere between $1250 to $20000 or higher. The hourly rates range from roughly $1000 to $2500, while the daily rates range from $850 to $2600. The per-person package is another popular option when it comes to such events, and it often ranges from about $80 to $135 or more, depending on the menu you choose. (All data from Tagvenue.)
When scrolling through our listings, you will be able to uncover some amazing gala dinner venues across the city, but here are a few areas that will blow you away. The city centre, especially areas near Town Hall Station and Wynyard, is home to countless elegant event spaces. You also can't miss out on venues in Kings Cross and Haymarket. If you enjoy a more modern venue decor check out Pyrmont or the exquisite venues in Moore Park, Alexandria, Camperdown and Chippendale.
Planning a gala dinner requires exceptional planning, which may take you at least a few months, depending on the type of gala. When organising a gala, the first thing to consider is how many tickets can be sold depending on the size of the event. Furthermore, you have to make sure the ticket price covers the event fees while still leaving money for the cause. Once you’ve sorted that out, you can start looking for the perfect venue. You should remember that the most sought-after places get booked even a year in advance, so don’t hesitate and make a booking as soon as you’ve found the perfect fit for you. Considering we’re talking about a gala dinner, you also shouldn’t forget about the food. Your guests and sponsors will expect delicious meal and beverage selections, so make sure your food is appropriate for the occasion. You should check in with the venue to see if they offer in-house catering, or whether you will need to hire external caterers to prepare a mouthwatering feast.
