For a venue with a difference, consider the Australian PlantBank on the city outskirts.

At just two years of age, the newest venue around town, the Australian PlantBank at the Australian Botanic Garden, Mount Annan, has been recognised with six prestigious awards for both architecture and sustainability.

Located just 45 minutes south-west of Sydney, the award-winning building was designed by Australian architectural practice, BVN Donovan Hill.

With sustainability and innovation in mind, this incredible piece of architecture is now available for organisations to hire for meetings, conferences, workshops, family corporate days, and gala dinners – anything that you can imagine.

Not only does the building provide a variety of unique spaces for use, it has been designed and built with some very impressive sustainability features including:

  • innovative design to minimise the use of non-renewable energy sources
  • water harvesting to reduce the use of non-renewable water
  • low maintenance materials
  • products made from sustainable components or recycled materials
  • materials with low combustibility to address the risk of bush fire from the adjacent critically endangered Cumberland Plain Woodland.

The meeting spaces include a 150-seat lecture theatre, two separate meeting rooms suitable for 16 boardroom-style or 32 classroom-style, all complete with Apple TV and drop down screens and projectors (three in the theatre), video conferencing facilities, education lab for 30, and all provided for with onsite catering. The gallery can seat up to 200 for dinner.

Surrounded by 416 hectares of botanic gardens, the venue is suitable for some great corporate family days, team-building activities, and events.
