Venues: National Museum of Australia

This morning after a cold walk along the lake, I think I earned my cup of tea and cake at the National Museum of Australia’s cosy cafe. This Canberra venue is somewhere I should venture to more often and should definitely use for a future high tea event.

The brief description on the Museum’s website gives a perfect overview of what this venue has to offer.

“Opened in 2001, the Museum boasts stunning architecture and magnificent mountain, lakeside and city views. Sweeping decks, expansive windows and imposing indoor and outdoor spaces make the Museum a highly versatile and dynamic function venue for any occasion.

Waterfront dining – indoors or out on the deck – combines delicious cuisine with spectacular views over Lake Burley Griffin.

The Museum’s Hall provides a stunning entertaining space that requires minimal event theming.

At the heart of the Museum is the Garden of Australian Dreams, a symbolic landscape exploring ideas of ‘place’ and ‘country’. This enclosed outdoor area, with its water features and creative landscaping and lighting effects, makes the perfect setting for any event under the stars”.

  1. Hi, I’ve heard good things about the Museum, I must visit on my next trip to Canberra. I just love your blog – I’m a big fan of afternoon tea, crockery, and Canberra too! I’ve nominated your blog for a Liebster Award. I’m not sure if this is something you’d be interested in, and if not, no worries. But if you are, just click on the link http://alexcellentblog.com/2014/06/ to find out more about it.

    • Thanks very much for your nomination, I’m a bit flat chat at the moment though if have a spare moment will definitely check this out.
