Touring Hall Foyer

With angled steel columns and soaring glass walls, this space boats an abundance of natural light and has access to a private outdoor courtyard. The courtyard houses seven large sandstone columns, known as The Lie of the Land, which represents John Batman’s words in his journal about his purchase of the site of Melbourne from the local Indigenous people.

The Touring Hall Foyer and Courtyard is an ideal setting for pre-dinner drinks or cocktail parties.
