Weddings, parties, everything! Riverside is on your side when it comes to hosting unforgettable Brisbane functions. We cater for all the special moments of your life, as well as a full suite of business functions, all with a real sense of occasion, the tastiest fresh food imaginable…and with the beautiful Brisbane River as a magnificent backdrop.

Customised Event Planning

At Riverside Receptions, no two functions are the same, so we like to think that every social or corporate event has been customized, or at the very least personalised. You have the idea for a special event, we make it a reality. Or if you don’t know exactly what you want, simply tell us what you would like to accomplish and our experienced team will work backwards from there. The same applies to your budget. Nominate a price per head and we’ll work backwards letting you know exactly what you can achieve. As we take care of practically everything in-house (thus keeping costs right down), you’re sure to be amazed at what can actually be done, even with a modest budget.

On Site Catering

Riverside Receptions pride ourselves on the fact that all catering for weddings, birthday parties, corporate events and other special events is done right here on the premises. Every mouth-watering morsel is cooked in our kitchens – we even make our own delicious party pies. There are two compelling reasons for doing this. Firstly by sourcing all our produce from trusted local suppliers and preparing it all ourselves, we know it’s top quality and always fresh. And secondly because there are no middlemen taking their slice, as you can see from our menus we can keep prices right down. Lower prices and no massed-produced food…what more could you ask for!

Large Groups

As one of the largest riverside function rooms in Brisbane, we can comfortably accommodate up to 2000 guests, cocktail style. This makes us the perfect venue for national product launches, major seminars and conferences, large staff gatherings, club get-togethers and much more. Furthermore no matter how many guests or delegates are in attendance, we’ll make sure that nobody gets lost in the crowd or that nothing gets overlooked. We always “over-staff” our functions. As host of a 1000+ function, you might not be able to make sure that everyone has what they need, but we certainly will.

Inside/Outside Areas

The beauty of Riverside Receptions is that it’s perfect for our brilliant Brisbane climate. You can enjoy yourself inside in air-conditioned comfort, and/ or take your party outside onto the gently undulating lawns overlooking the mighty Brisbane River. We can spaciously seat up to 700 guests in our separate but connecting rooms – the Main Ballroom, The Blue Room, and the aptly named River Room with its stunning views. What could be more delightful than to have your special day alfresco-style on the grassy banks of the river. At night it becomes a fairyland of twinkling tree lights, with the city background and passing boats reflected in the river.

Business Event Set-Up

In business, it pays to be versatile and adaptable, and to cater for all your customers’ needs. Riverside Receptions have taken these principles on board. That’s why we can set up specifically for every business event, be it a conference or seminar, trade show, product launch, business breakfast or luncheon, corporate fundraiser, staff party, or whatever is on your agenda. Whatever your corporate needs or timeframe, rest assured we have a room and a package to suit.
