Kibble Palace, Botanic Gardens

Situated within the Botanic Gardens, the Kibble Palace is one of the most prestigious iron and glass structures remaining from the Victorian era. The Kibble Palace is home to a marvelous collection of marble statues as well as temperate plants from around the world including the national collection of Australasian tree ferns which have grown there for the last 120 years.

The Kibble Palace is an important and unique glasshouse of its type and takes the form of a large dome and rotunda connected to a smaller dome by a link corridor. The small dome forms the main entrance area and attached to the north and south is extended transepts.

The maximum capacity for the venue is 100 seated or 150 standing.
