Venue Hire


Eildon Mansion is an impressive heritage-listed property located in the heart of St Kilda (51 Grey Street), which has retained extensive original internal features such as sandstone, marble and timber mantelpieces, ceiling roses, bay windows and large basement quarters for servants and a cellar.

The central section of the building, (the original house, named Barham House), was built in 1850 for Edward Bernard Green before being extended by the prestigious Melbourne architectural firm Reed & Barnes in 1871 for pastoralist John Lang Currie (1818-1898).

Venue hire is available for:

● Corporate functions;
● Meetings;
● Wedding ceremony;
● Exhibitions (see bottom of page for further information);
● Concerts &/or rehearsals;
● Photo shoots.
Note: hire of spaces for private functions/parties or wedding reception is no longer available.

Hire operating hours are:

Monday to Thursday: 9.30am to 7pm
Friday and Saturday: 9.30am to 6pm

Eildon Mansion’s spaces for hiring include:


● The BALLROOM (capacity: up to 200 for cocktails, 80 for conference/concerts and approx. 50 for dining).
The Ballroom has retained many of its original features from dado rails, ceiling corner and medallion mouldings to the impressive marble fireplace. It is bright and light and has access to the back veranda and garden.

Note: The Ballroom being also our main gallery space, exhibitions are presented throughout the year and hiring of this space would then normally means that there are some works hanging on the walls. Consequently, rental of Ballroom without works is only possible a few days a year.

(equipment includes: video projector/big screen/Internet/Yamaha upright Piano).

Our basement room is the old original kitchen of the Mansion. Many of its original features have been kept, giving the room an ecclectic charm  of old and new with a mix of old wallpapers, bluestone flooring, brick and stone walls as well as a modern ceiling, lighting and cinema screen.
The acoustic of the room is excellent and is a favorite music venue among musicians who have played there in the past.
It is available for hiring for band rehearsals, CD launches, film screenings (DVD or USB compatible).
