This is a beautiful old building that seems to host a lot of carpet sales and assorted other types of events but it is a great place to go for a wedding reception or other type of function. The servers are friendly and professional and...More

Attended a wedding reception here. Extremely hot night but air con worked okay. The building is lovely but something could be done about the really bad musty smell as you enter the main doors. The timber in this building is absolutely amazing and a perfect...More

Apparently, the government has spent a lot of money over the past years restoring Albert Hall. It is now back to being a fantastic venue for dance and community groups to use. If only there were more of these events and less rug sales.

This is our third time to go to this venue for the play school concert. Beautiful with the sun streaming in. There are chairs around but most people sit on the floor. Free parking on the weekends.

It's like stepping back into history when you walk into the Albert Hall. You can just imagine the flowing ball gowns of the ladies and the black suit and tie or early 1900 Military Uniforms of the men moving together on the dance floor with...More

A beautiful old historic Canberra building nestled on the shores of the lake. These days it is mainly used for exhibitions, functions and performances. If you get the chance to attend an event here, it is well worth the visit.

Hot. Hot. Hot. No air-conditioning. No coolers. No release from the heat of the day which is exacerbated by the hot tiles/concrete outside. It is a beautiful venue, though not as large as it looks and is definite need of updating. Certainly wouldn't pay in...More
