Sunken Garden

The Sunken Garden is an intimate amphitheatre with gardens, ponds and terraced lawns, and a much-loved feature of the campus.

For most of the year the Sunken Garden is an idyllic retreat for staff, students and wedding functions. Set near the Swan River in Matilda Bay and Kings Park, the Sunken Garden offers stunning surrounds for all manner of events, including wedding ceremonies, photographic sessions and filming.

Because of its popularity as a wedding venue, the Sunken Garden is not normally available for hire at weekends in the summer months at less than nine to 12 months' notice.

The gardens and buildings of UWA are listed on the Register of the National Estate.

The University is unable to host funerals, but memorial services are possible in certain locations.

For a wedding ceremony, read the information pack and complete a ceremony booking request.

For all other enquiries, including wedding receptions, please email or call University Theatres on +61 (8) 6488 7407.
