Functions & Conferences

Established in the late 1920’s as Canberra’s original cricket ground, historic Manuka Oval now boasts an amazing functions and events centre. Manuka Oval Functions & Events Centre is one of Canberra’s most unique functions venues that is sure to impress.

From the oval, the tower of Saint Christopher’s Cathedral and Red Hill are the only outside visible features. The Curators cottage with its hedged garden and the Lord Taverners Garden add a certain charm to the environment.

Today the venue hosts many local and National AFL matches, as well as local cricket and the PMs XI. Manuka Oval is just 10 minutes from Parliament House and the airport, with plenty of on-site parking. A downloadable parking map can be found here.
