Collingwood Town Hall

140 Hoddle Street, Collingwood

This venue is currently closed.

The centrepiece of this grand building is its ballroom which is ideal for theatre performances, musical productions, and warehouse sales.

First opened in 1887, the Collingwood Town Hall boasts impressive 19th century gold rush style classical design. The foyer entry and interior of the ballroom were refurbished in Art Deco style in 1938. In 2014, the Collingwood Town Hall had an extensive renovation to bring it into line with occupation health and safety requirements, the Disability Discrimination Act and the Building Code of Australia.
