Melbourne is a bustling metropolis with many exciting venues, unfortunately, many of them can be expensive. However, affordable options are available, you just need to keep your eyes open.

Great for meetings or workshops, receptions or parties, these function spaces are available in a variety of sizes across the city in libraries, recreation centres, community halls, parks and other public spaces. You can even book rooms in the Melbourne Town Hall.
