                    Organising events

                    Whether you are organising a public or private event, the City of Melbourne has a suitable location. Learn about the facilities and venues available and the permits and conditions that apply.

                    We have function rooms, seminar rooms, gallery spaces available to hire, and many areas within City of Melbourne parks and gardens can be booked for a variety of functions or gatherings. The city also has a Convention and Exhibition Centre for large-scale conferences.

                    • Event permits

                      If you are organising a public or a private event in any of City of Melbourne’s public spaces, you need an event permit. Permits ensure public safety and amenity in public spaces and assist in the sustainable management of our parks and gardens.
                    • Weddings in parks

                      City of Melbourne has some great parks and gardens to consider for your wedding ceremony. If you decide to hold your wedding in one of our parks and gardens, you will need to make a booking and apply for a wedding permit.
                    • Christmas parties

                      November and December is a busy time for our parks – each year, we receive a high volume of applications for Christmas parties. If you plan to hold a Christmas party in a City of Melbourne park, please apply early so we can handle bookings as efficiently and fairly as possible.
                    • Event venues and support

                      The City of Melbourne offers several support programs to help you stage your event successfully, and a variety of venues are available to suit all event types.
