About The National Gallery of Victoria

180 St Kilda Rd, Southbank
Melbourne, 3006

Just a few minutes walk from the CBD, the NGV is home to a large collection of artworks and attracts thousands of visitors each winter for its Melbourne Winter Masterpieces exhibitions. With a choice of two both contemporary yet elegant spaces, your guests will be impressed

The Great Hall is a large capacity event space famous for its high, stunning stained glass ceiling by Leonard French, a perfect venue for large dinners and cocktail receptions. Pre-dinner drinks can be held in Federation Court, beneath the expansive glass ceiling or on the Terrace overlooking the Grollo Equiset Garden, home to some of the Gallery’s most impressive sculptures

For a more intimate celebration, the Garden Restaurant transforms from a highly regarded restaurant by day to a contemporary venue for wedding dinners and cocktail receptions by night. Overlooking the magnificent gardens, the Garden Restaurant is framed by a backdrop of the city skyline, creating an artistic and stylish setting. A private entrance boasts a romantic boardwalk from the gate to the venue’s entrance whilst the gardens provide the perfect location for pre-dinner drinks.

Beautiful and elegant garden ceremonies can be held prior to the reception in the Grollo Equiset Garden under a beautiful arbour adorned by shady vines and surrounded by the artwork by world renowned artists. Impressive and exclusive photo opportunities will impress and add a memorable aspect to any wedding album.

Just wanted to write and say thank you for everything you and Peter Rowland did to make our wedding reception such a success. Everything was perfect, we loved the room and we're so happy that we picked it all the way from London. Everyone loved the location, the Melbourne setting, the sleek and sophisticated room, and the delicious food! We've had so many compliments. It was great working with you through many emails and calls to make it so perfect. Thanks for your efforts.

We and I had such a fantastic day, and have been remarking how brilliantly everything was done at the NGV. You and all the rest of the team there were so great and looked after everyone perfectly. We couldn't have been happier with the venue, food and people. We really appreciate all the effort you in particular went to for us and it was lovely to see you again briefly on Saturday. Thanks again for everything!

I just wanted to send you a quick note of thanks and feedback from our recent Wedding, which was one of the best nights of our lives. Thank you for all your help in planning our wedding day at the NGV on March 15th. You were fantastic in helping us pull together our day and creating a night that we had dreamt of. I would also like extend our gratitude and appreciation to all the staff and team at Peter Rowland for all that they did on the night. The service and food was impeccable and could not have faulted a thing. Still two weeks after the night we are receiving comments from our guests on what a great night it was with lots of comments about the exceptional service the Staff at Peter Rowland provided and they venue itself. The food was awesome, the atmosphere was great, and the venue looked amazing.
