The Boat House by the Lake

Named the best wedding venue in the ACT two years in a row, the Boat House by the Lake offers spectacular water views, fine dining and exceptional service.


Nestled in its own gardens right by the Lake Burley Griffin, the Boat House by the Lake is one of the most beautiful wedding venues Canberra has to offer. The views are magnificent, the food is divine and service is truly superb. This location simply ticks all the boxes, and you can rest assured that the staff will do everything to make your wedding day magical.

At the Boat House by the Lake, you will feel like you are “minutes from the city but miles away from the world”. Sunsets are breathtaking and the venue looks incredible year round. There are three romantic indoor functions to choose from catering for both big and small weddings, and each of them has access to the outdoor deck and the majestic private parklands.


The Boat House by the Lake offers award-winning food with a focus on modern Australian cuisine. The Head Chef and his team specialise in visually stunning and incredibly flavoursome dishes created from freshest seasonal produce. Owner James Souter will personally work with you to realise the wedding of your dreams, be it an intimate gathering or a grand celebration.
