Fitzroy Town Hall

201 Napier Street, Fitzroy

Due to restoration works Fitzroy Town Hall is unavailable for bookings until approximately April 2023. 

Fitzroy Town Hall's Classical Victorian design dating back to 1873 is a statement of the aspirations and burgeoning wealth Melbourne was experiencing during the gold rush era.

The Fitzroy Town Hall was rejuvenated to its former glory in 2007. Heritage areas were sympathetically restored, while modern improvements were added including a lift, commercial kitchen, and heating and cooling.

This stunning venue is suited to many different types of events including cocktail parties, balls and formal dinners.
