Its not the most obvious of places to situate a National Wine centre and I expect that visitor numbers weren’t quite up to original expectations which is why this is now primarily a function hall. However, the original exhibition about wine is still interesting and...More

Well! Considering it is called the ‘National’ Wine Centre of Australia, I expected a lot more. The coffee shop served great coffee but the self directed tour was a disappointment. Many of the interactive exhibits were broken. I have found out more about wine by...More

Toilets that smell worse than a Paris pissoire; lukewarm coffee; exhibits that don’t work or are broken and big party hogging the wine tasting- this is a big disappointment. For a national wine centre it doesn’t put Australia in a good light.

The centre is near the end corner of the botanical gardens. The building is huge and there are several big rooms which disappointingly seems like conference halls only filled with empty tables. There is really only one room at the top that has educational materials...More

We took the tour as well as tasting the wine. The tour guide was informative but the building itself is slightly sterile & the wine aspect almost feels incidental, the impression is that functions are the main purpose. That said, it was interesting & we...More

Wonderful venue to sample Australian wines at your own pace. With key card, you can select amount and type of wine to try. Very educated staff that can assist with any questions and good food to compliment the wine.

This is located by The Botanic Gardens. A modern building, impressive layout. Interesting but no more. Nice place.

The canapés were really good. The food and wine were really good quality and did not have the usual bilk preparation that you often find with events like this. Staff were friendly, accommodating and professional. Would recommend this venue.
