The auditorium completed in 1866 is truly an awe-inspiring room with stunning architecture and Victorian-style.
The first major event to take place in the Auditorium occurred on Friday 22 June 1866 with an Opening Gala Ball with 800 guests.
Today the 24m long, 18.5m wide and 22m high room is used for concerts, civic receptions, graduations, public meetings, private functions, weddings and community events.
It’s renowned as one of the finest acoustic venues in Australia and features flexible staging, in-house sound and lighting, with the capacity to hire the grand Walker & Sons organ, or the Steinway Grand Piano.
In 1990 the seating capacity was increased by an alteration of the organ galleries and the erection of a dress circle.
