  • What a space! As far as theatre goes, you don't get more intimidate than this. Spent 7 hours experiencing the splendour that is Angels in America here today: best play I've ever been to, and all credit to the venue!
  • great gallery and amazing venue for wedding. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
  • Amazing space for a wedding or function. We hosted our wedding here and loved the venue- the majority of our guests were from interstate/ overseas and they were all blown away. The events team were helpful throughout the entire planning process and incredibly hands on, on the day of the event. Andy is a wizz with the lighting! Highly recommend this venue!

Where to stay in Melbourne

The hub of tourist and commercial activity, the center of Melbourne remains the best place to stay if you're looking to splurge and enjoy every possible modern amenity during your visit. Travelers on a limited budget can search for cozy yet less expensive rooms in the seaside suburb of St Kilda or the bohemian neighborhood of Fitzroy. Though the city center offers more than a fair share of mid-range lodging options, you'll also find plenty of rooms in this price bracket in the quieter suburbs.
