Ginger Catering at the National Arboretum Canberra

With an abundance of natural light and sweeping views of iconic Canberra places, the venues at the National Arboretum Canberra are world class.


The National Arboretum Canberra has selective romantic settings and many great locations for photography, with dynamic backdrops for these precious records of your special day.
The Margaret Whitlam Pavilion is a spectacular, architecturally-designed wedding venue. You will be wowed by the vistas through the floor-to-ceiling glass as you step out onto a private balcony.

Perfect for small wedding ceremonies, the Pavilion conveys intimacy while offering the comfort and efficiency of modern features. The stylish design with arching walls, subtle lighting, a steeple roof and grand polished wooden front doors sets the scene for the beauty of your ceremony.


Their unique chapel is non-denominational, providing for your choice of  civil celebrant or minister of religion. This venue has a seating capacity of 80 or standing space for 120 guests. There is a variety of flexible package options that can be tailored to suit your preferences.

At the heart of the Arboretum is the Village Centre, featuring soaring high ceilings inspired by the fronds of the adjoining Chilean wine palm forest. The Village Centre is filled with natural light from windows and glass doors that provide uninterrupted panoramic views of Lake Burley Griffin and Canberra.


Designed in a modern dome-like cocoon, the features of the Village Centre are designed to work in harmony with the surrounding forests. With an abundance of natural light and sweeping views across some of Canberra’s most recognisable viewing points, the venues at the National Arboretum Canberra are purely majestic.
