For most of the year the Sunken Garden is an idyllic retreat for staff, students and wedding functions.

The setting is one of the most beautiful in Perth. By the Swan River in Matilda Bay and nearby Kings Park, the Sunken Garden offers a stunning setting 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 9 to 12 months' notice.

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