Docklands Venues Hire Guide

Straddling the Yarra, the Docklands is Melbourne’s premier modern harbour area, filled with brand new high-rises and popular areas for shopping and getting a meal and some drinks along the water. The Melbourne Star Observation Wheel stands as a colourful sentinel in an area defined by its pedestrian plazas filled with public urban art pieces, light displays, family-friendly sports and activity venues in Etihad Stadium and Harbour Town (anyone for mini-golf?). Visitors can catch the sunset at the Central Pier, take a stroll over the nearly adjacent Webb Bridge and Jim Stynes Bridge or even catch a cruise on the Yarra with the Melbourne Tramboat or Melbourne Showboat.

The Docklands isn’t huge, but they manage to fit a lot into a relatively small space. What this means for you is that you’re relatively spoilt for choice when it comes to function room hire in the area, regardless of whether you want to book something by the water, in a high-rise, or anything in between. Here are a few good areas to start looking:

  • Central Pier – You really can’t go wrong starting your search at the Central Pier, as you’re getting lovely views of the river and the city in every direction and have a dozen well known and trusted options for hire all within a hundred meters of each other. The area is famous for being a significant events hub.
  • Newquay – A stone’s throw north of the Central Pier, but much more solidly on land, Newquay combines harbourside views with a bit more space to work with on average in its function rooms If you’re looking for a cocktails and appetisers affair with a higher vantage view of the CBD and Victoria Harbour, you’re sure to find just the right spot!
