The Great Hall

The Great Hall, as its name suggests, is a ballroom suited to larger events.

With its Baronial architectural design features, lofty 20 metre ceiling supported by exposed timber beams and columns it is an impressive hall to host any conference, gala dinner, trade show, product launch, or presentation.

The 305 square metre Great Hall is able to be divided into 3 individual sections with the use of movable floor to ceiling wall panels which make it very versatile for break out sessions during a conference. There is no need for delegates to pack up materials and relocate to another room – the walls are simply closed off and then reopened when the combined conference reconvenes.

Drive in access through a 2.75m (wide) x 2.2m (high) entrance allows for demonstration vehicles to be put on show in The Great Hall.

The adjacent South Gallery runs the full length of The Great Hall and is often used for catering buffets as well as providing direct access to the front forecourt and car parking areas.
