Long Room

The magnificent palazzo-style Long Room resounds with the opulence of 1870s Melbourne. With Ionic columns, high ceilings and hand-laid tessellated tiles, this enormous space was the thriving centre of the customs and trade activity in Victoria for more than a century. The Long Room features a large exhibition installation of a replica ship in the centre of the room which represents that, no matter when they arrived, immigrants are all linked by the common experience of a journey.

Perfect for dinners, cocktail parties or presentations, this space is classic, elegant and rich in history.
