Venue hire and functions

With city skyline views and a riverside location in Melbourne’s historic Spotswood, Scienceworks makes the most of what was once a sprawling farm estate. Just five kilometres from the CBD and watched over by the West Gate Bridge, the grounds are home to a mix of contemporary design and 19th century architecture.

Fancy sipping a cocktail while you preview the future in the Beyond Perception exhibition? Or perhaps you’d like to launch your new product on the Melbourne Planetarium’s 16-metre high projection dome? Next to the Arena, the impressive Pumping Station features exposed beams, polished concrete floors and original brickwork – it’s a flexible and inspiring canvas for events.

From soaring industrial spaces to open lawns and interactive exhibits, Scienceworks is an inspiring destination. Whether you’re thinking fun, formal, intimate or large-scale, we'll work with you to create a unique, memorable event.
