From milestones to memories: celebrate at the Bridgeport Hotel

When it comes to hosting a special event, your venue sets the stage for unforgettable memories.

Host your next milestone birthday, engagement party, or wedding reception against a panoramic river backdrop at the Bridgeport Hotel.

Read on to find out how their friendly team takes the stress out of planning, leaving you to celebrate all night long with your loved ones (complete with a post-event retreat to luxury accommodation only an elevator ding away).

Versatile function rooms

When it comes to events, one size doesn’t fit all – so we love that the Bridgeport has a variety of function rooms, ranging from intimate spaces for small board meetings or exclusive dinners to expansive rooms capable of accommodating up to 250 guests.

These rooms are not only spacious but also highly adaptable, allowing them to be tailored to meet each event’s unique requirements . Whether you’re organising a conference, seminar, workshop, or team-building retreat, it has the perfect space for you.

Their most popular event space is the Murray Room, and for good reason. Here you can host 160 seated guests and up to 250 for cocktail receptions.

This room is excellent for engagements, wedding receptions and larger corporate events, with the inside space extending out to the exclusive balcony which offers stunning views across the riverfront and makes you feel like you’re sitting on top of the twin bridges.

Inside you’ll also have access to a stage, dancefloor, and private bar so you can amp up the atmosphere for your guests.

Delicious food service

No event is complete without delicious food, and at the Bridgeport, you can expect nothing short of culinary excellence.

You can work with their team to put on the spread of your dreams with a group dining menu (a premium refinement of their regular dining menu) and share platters.

They’ll wait on you all night, ensuring your special event unfolds just as you imagined.

Wedding packages

The Bridgeport’s wedding packages take the stress away from lovebirds wanting to tie the knot.

Make the most of our backyard’s picture-perfect river backdrop and hold your ceremony on the Sturt Reserve Wharf surrounded by lush gardens, or perched up at the Roundhouse with spectacular views.

Afterwards, enjoy the convenience of having your reception across the road in the Bridgeport’s Murray Room. Since it’s indoors, you can hold your reception here at any time of the year, and there’s the added bonus of onsite accommodation for you and your guests

Where to stay

Stay in style, overlooking the Murray River from one of their stylish Deluxe Bridgeview Suites.

This will place you in the prefect spot to unwind with a sky-high swim or sip a delicious cocktail from the deck, all while taking in the spectacular scenery (and, if you’re lucky, one of the incredible sunsets over the river).

Explore the region

When it comes to event planning, another venue to explore is Bridges Event Centre. Whether for a wedding, anniversary, or any other special event, the picturesque greenery and racecourse makes for a magical setting.

Plus its size, modern facilities, and proximity to Adelaide also makes it a popular venue for conferences and corporate gatherings.

After hosting an event, all you want is to relax and be pampered. We recommend switching off from reality and meandering the Mid Murray for a few days with a Murray Princess cruise.

Experience the timeless grandeur of cruising on the Southern Hemisphere’s largest paddle wheeler, where the breathtaking scenery of the majestic Murray River is complemented by historical and cultural immersion and premium dining.
