Located in the heart of the CBD, Melbourne Town Hall is the showcase destination for the city’s cultural and civic life. It plays host to grand gala dinners, exhibitions, corporate launches, conferences and cocktail parties.

For over 135 years, Melbourne Town Hall has been at the heart of events which have shaped the city’s future and celebrated monumental milestones. Here, Federation was debated, Nellie Melba debuted and the Beatles greeted adoring fans. The grand interiors echo with countless celebrations, gala occasions, festivals, and commemorations – the imprints of a community life across generations.

Catering for events of 10 to 2000 people, Melbourne Town Hall offers a superb suite of function rooms and spaces. Take in the majesty of the Main Hall. Bask in the character and elegance of the Yarra and Regent Rooms. Sip a cocktail while you look out over Swanston Street from the famous Portico Balcony.
