The Cargo Hall has the perfect balance of modern and historic elements. The raw, industrial heritage of the building shines through in the exposed beams, wide open space, and warehouse feel, while the professional management team and available facilities give a modern and sophisticated range of options for any need.
Originally built in 1875, heritage listed Cargo Hall has been carefully restored to become a modern “event manager’s dream”. Whether you’re looking for the ideal venue for your most special of days or for somewhere to hold your special corporate event, The Cargo Hall can make it happen.

A Recent Testimonial
Cargo Hall was the perfect venue for our Annual Conference Dinner. From booking the venue right up to the event itself it was a pleasure. The staff were excellent and the food couldn’t be faulted. I highly recommend Cargo Hall – we are already planning our next event there.

Cargo Hall were outstanding. They catered for our event in every way possible, trying to understand how to better our experience. The event manager was very accommodating and comprehensive in covering everything we needed. The food was delicious and timely. Our glasses were never empty and they had the best service I’ve seen from a venue! Very glad we chose them and will be working with them in the future!
