Melbourne’s Newest Events Destination – The State Library Victoria

Melbourne’s Newest Events Destination – The State Library Victoria

Introducing the State Library, Melbourne’s newest and premier events destination. Australia’s oldest and busiest public library by day and an exciting events hub by night.

After the completion of an $88.1 million redevelopment, the State Library reopened in December 2019, sharing some of the most beautiful rooms this country has to offer. Fourteen event spaces make up the interconnected hub of brilliant brand-new and classic venues that occupy an entire city block.

Grand weddings in the La Trobe Reading Room, Gala Dinners in The Ian Potter Queen’s Hall and charity lunches in the Isabella Fraser Room are just some of the events that have already been held within the library. With bigger plans the upcoming Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Abundant opportunities exist for brand activations, black-tie dinners, multiple-space conferences and much more in an unmatched unique events location.
