Private Gardens for Hire Hire Guide

Garden venues make any function better. A garden party is especially great if you’re looking to create a romantic atmosphere for engagement parties, anniversaries, weddings or even a garden reception. For corporate events, product launches, company functions, and cocktail parties a garden venue can help set an easygoing atmosphere allowing guests to relax and engage with each other.

So, if you’ve decided that a private garden venue in Melbourne is the way to go, you’ve come to the right place. We have included a comprehensive list of outdoor venues as well as some hints and tips to help make your garden party so amazing your guests won’t want to leaf (sorry, we couldn’t resist).

  • Your budget –Before you begin to contact venues, know your budget! There are so many private gardens for hire in Melbourne, knowing exactly how much you have to spend on a venue will allow you to eliminate those which are outside of your budget straight away.
  • Does the garden venue have the right layout and facilities? – Choosing the right venue is an important first step in planning a successful garden party. Consider the layout, size, furniture options, and atmosphere. Don’t forget about venue access, parking, restrooms, and even simple things like water and electricity. Often event organisers overlook these elements which can make or break an outdoor party.
  • How does the venue accommodate weather changes? – If you’re planning a garden function, the first thing to consider is the weather. While an outdoor function can be exciting, if it’s cold or rainy, none of your guests will be very pleased. Make sure to discuss contingency plans with the venue regarding unpredictable weather. Outdoor venues should have a plan B and it’s always best to find out what this is before committing to a venue. Here are some quick weather guides for garden venue hire in Melbourne:
    Wettest months - May - October (Average of 8 wet days per month)
    Coldest months - June - September (average low of 8℃)

So, how much will you pay to hire a garden? Here are some rough estimates for Melbourne:

  • Per person – For a light meal or canape menu, you can budget for around $20 to $30 per person. If you prefer a more substantial menu, be prepared to pay between $60 to $90 per person.
  • Minimum spend – There is no industry standard for pricing a minimum spend for private garden hire in Melbourne. Each venue has its own terms and conditions. Expect to pay anywhere between $600 to $8000 depending on the type of garden function, number of guests, and time of day/week/year.

If you’re on a tight budget, then consider planning your garden event during low-season. The low-season will typically be during the wet months so make sure the venue has a plan B.

Here are some of our all-time favourite locations for garden venues in Melbourne:

  • The much-loved Melbourne Central Business District is not all business; there is plenty of pleasure and this location is always a popular choice for a party of any kind! A beautiful urban garden is a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of the city without actually leaving the city.

Private Gardens for Hire in Melbourne FAQ

How far in advance should I book a venue in Melbourne?

Booking early is advisable for private garden venue hire in Melbourne, especially if you’re planning for an event during the popular summer months. Giving yourself time when searching for a venue will mean less pressure to make a decision, and more chance of finding your ideal outdoor venue. Some outdoor venues offer early bird rates so you might save by booking in advance.

How can I make an impersonal garden venue feel cosy?

Lighting does wonders for a party mood. By adding candles or fairy lights to your outdoor space you can create a more intimate cosy atmosphere. Colourful scatter cushions and throws also add a special touch. If it’s a cocktail party, create cosy seating areas where guests can stretch out and relax.
