New Melbourne Park Development Set to Enhance Event Experiences

By Melbourne and Olympic Parks, 15 March, 2019


Located on the edge of the city’s vibrant CBD, Melbourne & Olympic Parks (M&OP), home of the Australian Open tennis Championship, offers an array of world-class entertainment facilities and spaces, for a truly unique experience.

M&OP has embarked on the final stages of the precinct’s redevelopment, with its new function and media centre scheduled to open in February 2022.

The centre promises to elevate the precinct’s capabilities yet again and sit alongside some of the world’s most iconic venues; offering premium experiences for businesses and associations – all paired with Australia’s world-famous hospitality.

Civic in design, this architecturally impressive concept is quintessentially Melbourne and will include 8m-high ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows that will project natural light across a generous 2000sqm pillarless ballroom and 800sqm pre-function area.

On two levels, the upper one will feature a 200-seat auditorium, an abundance of breakout rooms and an outdoor terrace with uninterrupted views of the Melbourne City skyline.

With event bookings now open for 2022, don’t miss your chance to enhance your next event, in a magnificent venue second-to-none.

 In addition to the new centre, other M&OP venues available for booking include:

  • Rod Laver Arena: Known as Centre Court during the Australian Open, Rod Laver Arena is ideal for intimate gatherings within its exciting new indoor and outdoor spaces.
  • AAMI Park: Home to Melbourne’s award-winning stadium for football, rugby union and rugby league, AAMI Park offers a variety of spaces for events ranging from 10 to 1000 guests.
  • Margaret Court Arena and Melbourne Arena: Each arena is suitable for large-scale events – from 200 to 8500 guests – and offers the flexibility to host formal dinners, cocktail functions, galas and conferences.
