Melbourne Pavilion Function Venues Melbourne

The Melbourne Pavilion

Inner City Melbourne

Melbourne Pavilion is one of Victoria’s newest and most unique event destinations. Set in an inner city heritage listed building, you will find a stunning combination of new contemporary design and existing old world charm. Crystal chandeliers set the mood with contemporary decor making this a truly remarkable venue for your special occasion.

The Melbourne Pavilion is a unique multi layered event destination. Set in a magnificent fully renovated heritage listed art deco building at the edge of Melbourne CBD. Its stunning design is centered on the soaring and elegant freestanding timber ceiling arches, the last remaining example of this original architectural construction in Australia. Historic detail blends with the contemporary architectural refurbishment of rich and inviting colour, soft textural fabrics and upholstery, warm lighting effects with crystal chandeliers and a Moroccan inspired theme throughout.

The Melbourne Pavilion is a truly remarkable event in itself, offering a voluminous event space for large corporate function or a uniquely intimate surround to celebrate your special occasion; such as a wedding.

The Melbourne Pavilion began life as the Burge Bros Factory in Flemington. It was constructed in 1945-46 to a design by C.T Gilbertson with application to build rushed to meet urgent need from government to manufacture materials for defense purposes. Over the years it has been a spring factory, a foundry and also housed the extensive wardrobe for the movie Pharlap filmed locally throughout Flemington.

Step outside and observe a rectilinear style reminiscent of the work of Dutch modernist Willem Dudok. Step inside and the curved roof of the large factory is supported on glue-laminated (now the oldest and earliest known example of this method in Australia) arches spanning 30 meters. The arches are made up of 29 laminated sections of coach wood, and form a large column free factory area making this a space of scientific and architectural importance to the State of Victoria.

Accommodating for functions for 200 – 600 people for a sit down celebration provides an intimate personalized setting even in its full event capacity.
