    The Australian Design Centre is a leading craft and design centre that inspires, informs and engages people about the power of creativity and the application of design in their lives. Our playful yet sophisticated space, designed by award winning architects Those Architects, is available for venue hire.

    Situated within the lower gallery, we have a large table suitable for creative workshops and meetings. The table can host 10 people comfortably. The lower gallery also contains a theatrette, which makes for a great break-out space. The table is available to hire Monday to Friday, 9am – 5pm.

    Our space would be most suitable to other creative businesses, not for profits, community groups and those sympathetic to the fact the gallery is open to the public. Our exhibitions and retail space Object Shop, will add an exciting backdrop to your event and inspire creativity.
