Eastern Suburbs Venues Hire Guide

The eastern suburbs of Melbourne include Knox, Boroondara, Maroondah, Manningham, Whitehorse and Yarra Ranges. These neighbourhoods host a higher average age of residents than the city itself - this is because there are several retirement villages in the Eastern Suburbs. This whole vicinity is known for having lovely, green surroundings; it doesn’t feel like you’re in a city at all. The Dandenong Ranges are only a short drive away for those who wish to get away for a hike while in the area.

Here are some of our favourite locations for hiring a function venue in the Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne:

  • The Shire of Yarra Ranges – Found in the outer eastern and northeastern suburbs of Melbourne, the Shire is a massive area with all sorts of function venues available. The nice thing about the entirety of the Yarra Ranges is that there is gorgeous scenery everywhere you look. The advantage you get from moving a little further from the city for your event is that it will be easier to find private rooms or even free rooms for hire.
  • Boroondara – One of Melbourne's closest suburbs; you won't have to travel far from the CBD to get there. There are a number of restaurants and party houses to pick for your event in Boroondara. 
  • Knox – Knox is a friendly town located 36 kilometres from Melbourne's CBD. Knox has several small function venues available as well as a few churches that rent out their fellowship halls and sanctuaries for community events.
