Closed to the public since 2003, Queen's Hall features one of Melbourne's most beautiful 19th-century interiors, evoking the splendour of Marvellous Melbourne.

Discover the grand entrance to Queen's Hall with its sweeping marble staircase and walls adorned with magnificent 1920s murals created by artists Napier Waller and Harold Septimus Power.

Inside, ornate plasterwork, elaborate chandeliers, heritage furniture and beautiful 19th-century decor are revealed.

Now a popular venue for functions, past events at Queen's Hall have included weddings, murder mysteries and themed cocktail parties.
