Venue hire

Looking for something different?

We have a variety of venue spaces for small to large groups. The grand Ian Wark Theatre is the centrepiece, with the other spaces, most with large windows, located on the building’s outer curve.

If you’re seeking an alternative to boxy and airless you’ll love our options. Need an outdoor breakout space or fresh air during lunch? Step outside and enjoy our attractive areas by the moat.

We host small private soirees to international business conferences and unforgettable family celebrations. Book just one space or take over the entire Shine Dome—it’s up to you.
