Finding the perfect kids party venues does not need to be difficult. Firstly, think about the type of event you would like to have, as well as a rough budget. Then search google with some of the below venue options along with your suburb. 


Cost-Effective Venues for Birthday Parties

These kids party venues are easily accessible, can be found in every suburb, and best of all are very cost effective (or free!). Although these options are cost effective, they usually require some forward planning and preparations (I.e bringing food utensils, esky’s, soap for the toilets, etc).

Hints and Tips 

  • Our Recommendation: When in doubt, hire a hall. Halls are the perfect venues for birthday parties. Not only do they usually have large indoor and outdoor spaces, but they often have kitchens, toilets, easy car parking and tables/chairs included. They are cost effective and have plenty of space for Children’s Entertainment, if you are hiring an entertainer. 
  • The Cost of a Park Party: Having a party in the park can be great if you are on a budget and happy to do some extra planning. The downside is you have to bring EVERYTHING yourself (extra tables, chairs, shelter, rugs, drinking water, hot water, soap for toilets, ice to keep food cold, etc.). The other issue can be unpredictable weather. For more information read our post on How to Host a Successful Park Party or Outdoor Event.
  • Back up Venue: If you are having a Park Party or have a Venue with only an outdoor area, ALWAYS have a backup plan that’s indoors or under shelter in case of poor weather. Generally, having a back up space that is nearby your chosen venue is best. This could be as simple as having your house (or a family member’s house) ready to relocate to if needed.
