Town Hall Broadmeadows has been a fixture in the landscape of Melbourne's north for more than half a century. In 2019, the venue underwent a multimillion dollar makeover that has seen it enter a new and exciting chapter as a contemporary space for weddings, corporate, private and community events. 

A charming venue steeped in history

It was November 1964. The Beatles had just swept through Melbourne on their world tour, Dawn Fraser had won Olympic gold in the 100-metre freestyle for the third time in Tokyo, and Ron Barassi had captained Melbourne just weeks before to a thrilling Grand Final win over Collingwood.  In Melbourne’s northern outskirts, the burgeoning suburb of Broadmeadows was facing unprecedented growth, as baby boomers chased the dream of a new home in the aftermath of the Second World War.

In the 20 years prior, more than 15,000 people had moved into the suburb - most spurred on  by the promise of a spacious precast concrete house on a large block, where they could raise a young family. To meet that growth, the former City of Broadmeadows embarked on an ambitious Town Hall development. 

Built at a cost of £450,000, the Town Hall was one of the largest buildings of its type in Victoria at the time, heralding an exciting future for Melbourne’s north.

When former Opposition Leader Arthur Calwell officially opened the new venue to much fanfare, he described it as a magnificent hall that had no equal in Melbourne. It was front page news across Melbourne’s newspapers, and those who had the courage and foresight to embark on the project were recognised and congratulated.

Over the next 50 years the Town Hall grew into an iconic landmark for the community. From weddings and debutante balls, gala dinners, cocktail parties, school dances, concerts, parties and an AC/DC gig – you name it, the Town Hall has seen it.

We’ve honoured the building’s unique history by restoring key architectural design features while transforming our interior to provide a vibrant and contemporary space for today. The venue's grand façade, iconic red brickwork, floor-to-ceiling windows and mountain grey gum floors have been painstakingly restored by hand.

A space for every occasion

The Main Hall 

Catering for up to 450 people seated and 800 people standing, the Main Hall can be tailored to host a wide range of private, business and community events. The expansive space features original details of the building, including floor-to-ceiling windows, mountain grey gum timber floors and a balcony, which is accessible from the second floor. 
The space is supported with the latest audio and visual technology - including state-of-the-art presentation screens, lighting and speakers - plus scalable dancefloor and staging options to bring every event to life. 


The Blue Lounge 

The Blue Lounge provides a touch of glamour to the Town Hall. Sophisticated and atmospheric, it offers a place to celebrate in style. Ideal for events catering for 50 to 100 guests, the lounge is adorned with blue velvet drapes and original red brick walls, a beautifully restored upright piano, and a large suspended timber sculpture by artist Robbie Rowlands.
Located on the second floor, it provides direct access to the balcony and a bird’s eye view of the Main Hall. 

The Bar 

Ideal for arrival and pre-dinner drinks or events catering for 100 to 150 guests, The Bar is located on the first floor and provides direct entry to the Main Hall. Enjoy a wide selection of wine, beer, spirits and non-alcoholic beverages before an event in the main hall; or book out The Bar for a more relaxed celebration.

The Gallery 

The Gallery is one of Hume City Council’s dedicated visual arts venues showcasing both local and international talent. It presents an annual program of innovative and engaging arts, cultural and heritage exhibitions. The Gallery offers a unique backdrop for pre-dinner drinks and functions catering for 150 people. 

Meeting Rooms
