Welcome to Lakeside Banquet and Convention Centre

Established in 1986 – Lakeside Banquet & Convention Centre has consolidated its position as the premier wedding, event, large and small conference venue in Melbourne’s North West. Well respected and noted throughout greater Melbourne the Galea family stems from humble beginnings whereby the patriarch Laurie bestowed his generous and witty nature coupled with good old-fashioned work ethic upon his extended family. A true understanding of his community and respect for the common man.

Now into its third generation, these qualities continue to evolve. Alongside our specialist team of creative wedding planners and intuitive event coordinators, you will be guided through a seamlessly tailored event. Our culinary team and wait staff understand the importance and gratification of satisfying your guests. – Bradley Galea
