About Scienceworks

Scienceworks is an ideal venue if you have a large guest list and a desire to create a unique, memorable event.

It’s easy to find, whether you choose the short walk from Spotswood train station or one of 300 on-site parking spaces.

Fancy sipping a cocktail while you preview the future in the Think Ahead exhibition? Or perhaps you’d like to launch your new product on Melbourne Planetarium’s 16-metre-high projection dome? In Sportsworks exhibit, racing Cathy Freeman before dinner is a very real option!
Our Arena presents a unique opportunity to hire a massive oval for any number of uses – just let your imagination be your guide. The sprawling, lush grass makes it a perfect warm weather spot for cocktail parties and family days, while sit-down banquet dinners al fresco can be sheltered by a marquee any time of the year. 

We are always excited to welcome guests to the heritage-listed Pumping Station – its impressive architecture and unique history always makes for a memorable occasion. Full of character, it’s one of our most popular spaces for that special day.

    Pumping Station Boiler House

    We are always excited to welcome guests to the heritage-listed Pumping Station – its impressive architecture and unique history always makes for a memorable occasion. The size of its spaces and our experience hosting large-scale events make it the perfect choice for corporate activities, whether big dinners, cocktail parties or family days, and, of course, weddings. Full of character, it’s one of our most popular spaces for that special day. We love the Boiler House for its soaring, exposed ceiling and raw industrial feel – this is the stuff of warehouse lovers’ dreams! With a sense of curious anticipation, guests enter via a long, moodily lit ramp, emerging into a cavernous space home to two enormous, fully restored boilers. It has a character all of its own, but Boiler House can also be a perfect blank canvas offering flexibility to play with.

    Melbourne Planetarium Dome

    Melbourne Planetarium is an extraordinary space. Sit back beneath a horizontal dome 16 metres high and see the night sky revealed like never before, or be taken on a journey of discovery through the Universe. We have a range of shows that can be chosen exclusively for your event, which could be anything from a product launch, private screening or seminar presentation.

    Melbourne Planetarium Foyer

    The Foyer is often hired in conjunction with the Melbourne Planetarium, although you can certainly use it alone. This space hosts ever-changing astronomy and space technology-themed exhibitions that are brilliant backdrops to dinners, cocktail parties and other occasions. We can also offer a private entrance here, so you and your guests don’t need to enter through the main building. Above the entrance, there is a large screen that can be used to display company logos and image galleries or to support presentations.

    Scienceworks Arena

    Our Arena presents a unique opportunity to hire a massive oval for any number of uses – just let your imagination be your guide. Presided over by the shimmering glass Scienceworks building and its pavilion-style amphitheatre, it offers spectacular views over the top of the beautiful Pumping Station to the West Gate Bridge, Yarra River and Melbourne skyline. The sprawling, lush grass makes it a perfect warm weather spot for cocktail parties and family days, while sit-down banquet dinners al fresco can be sheltered by a marquee any time of the year.
