Treasured as one of the grandest surviving 19th century halls in Australia, the Centennial Hall was completed in 1889 in honour of the centenary of the founding of Australia.
A spectacular and versatile setting for grand banquets, balls, concerts, conferences and large-scale events of every description, the Centennial Hall comfortably seats up to 800 people for dinner, 1,500 for cocktail events and 2,000 people seated theatre-style. A ceiling height of 20m enhances audiovisual presentations.
This glorious venue features a Tasmanian blackwood and tallowwood floor and the famous 25m wide Grand Organ, which spans the entire width of the western wall. There are 21 stained glass windows featuring Australian flora, a stunning ornate ceiling and 12 giant marbled pillars in the corners of the hall.
The Centennial Hall offers sublime acoustics, spectacular lighting opportunities and a Fazioli grand piano is available for hire. An unrivalled space for performances and events of every kind, the sheer scale of the Centennial Hall offers great versatility in event planning and infinite options for staging and theming special occasions.
