Frasers Restaurant and the State Function Centre
Frasers Restaurant in Kings Park has been one of Perth’s most popular restaurants and wedding reception venues for many years. Since the upgrade which has incorporated the State Function Centre into the upper floor of Frasers it has simply become even better. Spectacular views of the Perth city-scape are the backdrop for a magical evening.
Frasers has spaces that can cater for 70 to 400 guests making one of Perth’s largest venues. Nestled into the hillside at the top of Kings Park guests also have the flexibility to enjoy the space around the venue before the reception starts or for a short break during the evening.
Wedding limousine access
Frasers is one of the most accessible venues in Perth for wedding cars. The front and rear entrances can both accommodate the largest Hummer and Chrysler limos and of course vintage wedding cars. The car park behind Frasers has ample parking for wedding guests with the possible exception being nights when there is a concert being hosted at the Kings park Botanical Gardens.
If a concerts is being hosted on the night of your wedding reception at Frasers it would be worth informing your guests because the car park can fill with concert goers in the late afternoon and it will be difficult to find parking anywhere near the venue. You will also be wise to coordinate a finish time that is different from the end of the concert.
Discuss your entrance to the reception with your photographer. Most couples are delivered to the chauffeur’s drop-off zone on the upper level at the rear car park entrance shown with our classic wedding cars in the photo below. This is the main entrance to the State Function Centre.
Many couples do choose to be let out on the lower level near the round about in front of Frasers (as shown in the photo with the Rolls Royce and Chrysler limo above) where the photographer will take some arrival photos with the city back-drop before you make your entrance. Your chauffeur will need to know your preference before arriving at Kings Park. If your wedding cars drive past the front drop-off zone thinking you will want the car park entrance, it could take up to ten minutes to return to the front drive (depending upon the size of limousine you have and how busy Fraser Avenue is on the night). School ball season runs from February through until the end of June each year.
On school ball Friday and Saturday nights (especially in February and March) there can be 30 – 40 limousines visit Fraser Avenue between 6.00 – 7.30pm as the students stop for photographs while they enjoy a limo ride to their ball. This information should be considered as you plan your entrance to the reception.
School ball limo access
School ball organisers have started booking the State Reception Centre for their ball. The new venue is a great size for large schools and the separation from the city would appeal to many school administrators. The limo driver will need to know whether the students need to be dropped at the round-a-bout in front of Frasers or at the rear car park entrance before arriving at Kings Park. If your limo driver goes past the front drop-off zone thinking you will want the car park entrance, it could take up to ten minutes to return to the front drive (depending upon the size of limousine you have and how busy Fraser Avenue is on the night).
At the end of night pick-up most limo drivers will wait in the main car park behind Frasers for the students. This is better coordinated before the students are dropped at the ball because there can be 20 – 30 limos at the venue at the end of night.
