The high ground, Wurdi Youang
(You Yangs – Big hill in the middle of the plains)
Major events and balcony

The fifth floor features a flexible, multi-purpose event space with capacity to seat up to 250 people. High-end audio visual technology and facilities make this the perfect venue for business events, receptions, dinners and weddings.

The domed ceiling is lined with ochre-coloured hexagonal tiles which replicate the geometry of the external domed façade. A large acoustic stackable wall system enables the space to be divided into two smaller rooms. Mirror-finished doors open onto the large north-facing deck with glazed balustrades, providing spectacular views over Corio Bay to the You Yangs.


  • 250-seat capacity flexible and multi-purpose auditorium/conference/meeting/display space; and
  • North-facing balcony (100-person capacity) with views over central Geelong and the waterfront across Corio Bay to the You Yangs.
