ABOUT The Facility
Warehouse Function Venues

The Facility is Melbourne’s newest multi-level events space within the iconic Younghusband Woolstore, only 4kms from the heart of the CBD.

The 100 year old red-brick warehouse, spans the equivalent of two city blocks and has been a creative hub for decades, only recently transformed into a unique function and expansive events space.

The Facility is a quintessentially ‘Melbourne’ experience, featuring exposed steel beams, a sawtooth roof, graffiti and laneway access (food trucks anyone?).

An absolute dream blank canvas venue, with several spaces to choose from, giving you the flexibility to create an event that distinctly reflects you or your brand. With industrial warehouse vibes, wet weather options and the ability to BYO catering, The Facility has you covered.

Allow your guests to be the first to explore these spaces not previously open to the public.

With five unique spaces available they can cater to weddings and events of all sizes from 30 to 1,500 guests.

We are not currently taking bookings for 16th, 18th, or 21st birthday parties.
