Gorman Main Hall

The Gorman Main Hall is a bright, versatile space that balances heritage architecture with contemporary function.

Originally built in the 1920’s as a dining hall, the Main Hall features high ceilings with exposed beams and plenty of windows, filling the space with natural light. Situated at the heart of the centre, the Gorman Main Hall overlooks two attractive symmetrical courtyards with covered walkways surrounding magnificent Hawthorn trees. This is an ideal venue for cocktail functions, conferences, exhibitions, launches, trade shows and performances.
