The ground floor space has a number of different rooms available for hire. The rooms can be hired out individually or as a whole. Four of the five rooms can be combined to create a single expansive space that caters for conferences, large meetings, lunch or dinner functions. The rooms are equipped with the latest video conferencing equipment.
The building also offers a foyer area where event participants can be welcomed and has all the amenities needed to host your next event or function. It caters for visitors that have mobility needs (with a ramp to access the front of the building).
We have onsite catering offering delicious meals and snacks to meet all of your function needs. The ground floor space includes an informal café/eating area that leads onto a large outdoor deck, some of which is undercover, overlooking the picturesque Dights Falls and Yarra Bend Parklands. | Images here
