Look through Council’s venues as hire applications open

Published 22 March 2022

The Venue Visual Walkthrough tool highlighting St Kilda Town Hall.

Hiring Council venues just became even easier thanks to our Venue Visual Walkthroughs.

This new tool provides a virtual tour of Council’s many facilities, allowing users to ensure the venue is a perfect fit for their event.

With the ability to visualise the space, you can view the amenities and furniture inside the buildings, gain a greater understanding of accessibility and features as well as the equipment and technology on offer.

The walkthroughs can be used in a similar fashion to Google’s Street View tool, where users click and drag to move around the space as information about the venue appears, such as room measurements.

Whether you’re looking to hire a venue, or just want to have a sticky beak at the historic Town Hall buildings, the new walkthrough tool is accessible via the Find a Venue page on the City of Port Phillip website.

The Venue Visual Walkthrough tool is currently available for nine Council venues:

  • South Melbourne Community Centre
  • Port Melbourne Community Room
  • Sandridge Community Centre and Trugo Club
  • Port Melbourne Community Centre and Trugo Club
  • Fishermans Bend Community Centre
  • Sol Green Community Centre
  • Middle Park Community Centre
  • Port Melbourne Town Hall
  • St Kilda Town Hall

In more good news, our community centre venue applications are now open for the 2022/23 financial year.

All applications must be made through the customer booking portal or via the Community Centre regular hire form before the closing date of Sunday 3 April and must include the appropriate supporting documentation.

More information on resources for hiring venues can be found on our website.
