We have a beautiful venue, ideally located in Melbourne, which you can hold your next private function, wedding ceremony, wedding reception, cocktail party, birthday celebration, meeting, photo shoot or if you are visiting Melbourne and need affordable accommodation, we have that too!

Ideal City-edge Location at Affordable Prices

If you are coming to Melbourne, or wish to host an event in beautiful and historic surroundings, consider the attractions of The University of Melbourne’s Medley Hall, at 48-56 Drummond Street, Carlton.  A  five-minute walk to the heart of the city in one direction and ten minutes to The University of Melbourne in the other, Medley Hall is ideally located.  It is close to public transport and city airline bus terminals.  In one direction is the bistro life of Carlton, and in the others are the Exhibition Gardens, the Central Business District, Chinatown, theatres and nightclubs, Gertrude St and Fitzroy.

Medley Hall's renovation included an extra level of bedrooms and self contained bathrooms, a three level glass atrium (PDF 65Kb), a lift, and new furniture and fittings throughout. The magnificent Victorian Italianate building, “Benvenuta”, where the dining hall, formal lounge room and music room are situated, has been fully refurbished . Benvenuta is a fascinating, characterful venue for any event.  The College now has wheelchair access throughout.

Fifty-five bedrooms are available. Most rooms have a single bed and some have a double. These rooms are available from the end of November to February.  (If you are looking for  affordable accomodation during the Australian Open in January please contact us).


Conference, meeting and private function enquiries are welcome and events may be accommodated throughout the year.
