The Cargo Hall is Melbourne’s “oldest newest” venue for weddings, corporate functions, and special events. With our own in-house chef, full bar, and stunning waterside views, The Cargo Hall is one of the most sought-after locations for a stylish modern party with some old world industrial charm that affords you a very interesting foundation or platform to launch any event.
An event planners dream, The Cargo Hall can best be described as a “blank canvas” on which you can dream up your ideal event. The pillar-less, fully open space can accommodate up to 220 people for a sit-down event and up to 600 people for cocktails.
There’s a stage area that can be adapted to suit any type of event, or removed altogether when not required. The venue is ideally located on the south bank of the riverside, giving a truly breath-taking view of Melbourne, day or night. There’s also an outside riverside terrace area that can be used to give an outdoors aspect to any type of event.
Situated adjacent to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, the Cargo Hall is perfect for corporate events where there’s a need for a more intimate setting.
Old-world industrial chic meets modern elegance
The Cargo Hall has the perfect balance of modern and historic elements. The raw, industrial heritage of the building shines through in the exposed beams, wide open space, and warehouse feel, while the professional management team and available facilities give a modern and sophisticated range of options for any need.
Originally built in 1875, heritage listed Cargo Hall has been carefully restored to become a modern “event manager’s dream”. Whether you’re looking for the ideal venue for your most special of days or for somewhere to hold your special corporate event, The Cargo Hall can make it happen.
