Cargo Hall Melbourne Corporate Functions & Events on The Yarra

Cargo Hall is under the award-winning Showtime Event Group banner, so you can expect nothing short of perfection for your next corporate event. Located on the bustling South Wharf Promenade, surrounded by internationally renowned restaurants, hotels, and tourist attractions, Cargo Hall is the perfect location for workplace events, from presentations and performances to celebratory dinners and Christmas parties.

A former docking shed, Cargo Hall blends rustic warehouse aesthetics with modern comforts. Views overlook the Yarra River and city beyond, and plenty of natural light can fill the space during the day. Dark timber floors and soaring ceilings create an open and welcoming vibe.

What makes Cargo Hall such an attractive venue for corporate events is what’s included in your hire:

  • WiFi throughout the venue
  • A projector for presentations
  • Flatscreen TV
  • AB equipment, including an impressive sound and lighting rig
  • Plenty of natural light and floor space

Whether you’re hosting an informal get-together or a black-tie gala, you have a wide variety of catering options. You could opt for roving hot and cold canapes or a shared buffet to encourage your colleagues to mingle, or for something more formal, select a multi-course plated menu. They also offer lunch packages for corporate events that take place within business hours.

Planning an event with a special guest speaker? Cargo Hall has a private green room at the rear of the building where your VIP can hang out until it’s their time to shine. Handsome leather couches and soft natural light set the scene for a calming pre-show atmosphere or a post-show wind-down.
