The most wonderful time of the year always seems to be right around the corner, and in what feels like a blink of an eye, we’re passing around presents and celebrating another great year. The Christmas carols are playing in all the shops and we all start to slow down and get ready for wonderful endings and new beginnings.
It’s time to bust out the Christmas attire and start planning for a memorable Christmas party that truly stands out!
It can seem like no small task to pull together an entire Christmas event, function or party, let alone making it one that is spectacular. You may be wishing you could ask Saint Nick for a loan of his elves to help with the planning, whilst you make your own to do lists (and check them twice!) Whether you’ve been put in charge of booking the family, company or friendly Christmas get together; our great capital has a number of fantastic venues to delight your guests. From Bruce to Parkes and Canberra City, A LIST Guide’s top picks for Christmas party venues in Canberra is the perfect place to start.
