FAQ

Can I book a function or conference without an accommodation package?

Alexandra Park Conference Centre has a variety of function and meeting spaces available and we welcome bookings for special events.

Our largest auditorium seats up to 500 people and most areas can be reconfigured for more intimate gatherings and small meetings. We also have available a number of small meeting rooms suitable for conferences, training sessions or board meetings

In the past we’ve held national conferences and even a few weddings. Check out “What We Offer” or contact us for more information.

Our group needs several meeting spaces for different purposes, can you fit us in?

A variety of different sized meeting spaces are available, including rooms that can be set up for music group practice, small group breakaway sessions or noisy activities requiring their own space. We’ll work with you to best use the available space at Alexandra Park Conference Centre.

We can also work with small groups that need a larger meeting space for special purposes, for example team building or craft groups that need extra room. Please note that some special arrangements may be subject to extra costs.

What size group can you take?

If you require accommodation, we take bookings for groups up to 250. A surcharge may apply to groups less than 25. We have several different sized meeting areas, with our largest seating up to 500 people, perfect for large conferences. These spaces are flexible and can also be reconfigured to suit smaller, more intimate gatherings.

How far in advance do I need to book?

Bookings are of course subject to availability onsite. Depending on the size of your group, you may need to book further in advance. Large national conferences or groups with special requirements usually book two years in advance to secure their place; but please submit an enquiry and we will work with you to book a suitable time for your group.
