MAC 02 on Hobart’s iconic waterfront is TasPorts’ premier indoor venue, ideal for your medium to large corporate event, concert or trade show.
Within a short walk of Hobart’s CBD and some of the city’s finest hotels, MAC 02 features modern concrete flooring, high ceilings, and large glass windows.
MAC 02 is available for dry hire only, providing you with the flexibility to personalise and tailor the space to large scale or more intimate events. TasPorts can facilitate waste management, cleaning, and security on your behalf (additional charges apply), and we have a fantastic selection of preferred suppliers to recommend for all your catering, styling, production and event planning needs.
The venue is easily accessible with ground vehicle access, a large back of house space, and comes equipped with a large projection screen and partitions. MAC 02 can accommodate theatre seating for up to 1,700 guests, trade shows with up to 110 booths, conference dinners for 1,300, and cocktail events for up to 3,000 guests.
Due to general port operations and commitments to cruise, limited dates are available at MAC 02 during the busy summer season. Please be aware that vessels may be berthed adjacent to MAC 02, reducing water views.
MAC 02 is located next to MACq 01, and within a short walk of some of the city’s finest hotels.
MAC 02 has level access to all entrances. There is one accessible toilet cubicle provided, and assistance animals are welcome in all parts of MAC 02.
There is plenty of voucher parking on Hunter Street, Evans Street and Franklin Wharf. The nearest taxi rank is located at the Hotel Grand Chancellor.
