Built in 1926 and lovingly refurbished to incorporate 21st-century comforts, Hotel Kurrajong is the perfect venue for weddings inspired by tradition and heritage.


Located 10 minutes from Canberra CBD, Hotel Kurrajong offers everything you need for an elegant wedding reception. It was originally opened in 1926, and its design evokes the romance of the roaring twenties. The building was once the residence of Prime Minister Ben Chifley, and more recently it has been refurbished to its original grandeur.


Hotel Kurrajong is a gorgeous Canberra wedding venue where you can host an intimate event for as little as 12 people, a banquet style reception for 200, or a cocktail party for 350 guests. There are 5 fantastic event spaces and a small function room which is ideal for private dining. These beautiful venues are ideal for romantic, vintage-style reception as their warm interior design oozes with old world charm. During winter months spaces are cosy with crackling fire and candelabra, while summers are magical because you can take advantage of sweeping terraces and verandahs overlooking the manicured garden.
