About this space

Half Acre is a striking event space in South Melbourne, located in a historic mill in Fisherman's Bend. A singular urban sanctuary in Melbourne's industrial south, ensuring the building's heritage is maintained, restored, and highlighted.

The grandeur of the old Mill - with its exposed brick walls and soaring stained timber ceilings, dating to the early 1900s - sets the scene for a relaxed, comfortable, intimate, and unique wedding and event experience.
