Cocktail Functions 

The Brisbane Showgrounds has a large and versatile range of indoor and outdoor venues, suitable for cocktail functions.

With its flexible configuration, the Royal International Convention Centre (Royal ICC) is ideal for any sized cocktail event. Large numbers can be catered for within the Halls and Foyer areas, while small numbers can gather in an intimate setting in the meeting rooms. An outdoor function option is also provided within the beautifully established Plaza.

Event planners can also add some country character to their cocktail function by choosing to hold it at Stockmen's Bar and Grill. Or for a more picturesque venue, Stockman’s Rest surrounded by six majestic fig trees is the perfect spot for a relaxed daytime or elegant evening function.
