The heritage-listed and tastefully refurbished Audley Dance Hall overlooks the grounds of Audley and the Hacking River from the full length, wide, sloping verandah. The Dance Hall can accommodate up to 200 seated guests with the timber dance floor covering the entire room, so you can choose your preferred layout. The timber lined walls, high ceilings and doors opening to the verandah overlooking the park, provide the room with character and history, yet is subtle enough to enable your style to shine through.

Sip champagne and nibble gourmet canapés with your guests, while the helpful staff organise the rest, allowing you to focus on the more important things. Whether you're exchanging vows or organising a social or corporate event, the natural bush setting and scenic river views from the shady verandah make it both an elegant and relaxing venue.
