ABOUT Pumping Station

With city skyline views and a riverside location in Melbourne's historic Spotswood, the Pumping Station at Scienceworks makes the most of what was once a sprawling farm estate. Just 5 kilometres from the CBD and watched over by the West Gate Bridge, The Pumping Station is one of Melbourne’s iconic 19th century landmarks, and a popular choice for events.

From the industrial interiors—with exposed beams, polished concrete floors and original brickwork—to the stately central courtyard, it’s a flexible and inspiring canvas for functions. Pumping Station is easy to find and ideal for large guest lists, whether you choose the short walk from Spotswood train station or one of 300 on-site parking spaces.

Classified by the National Trust, it’s a reminder of Melbourne's glamorous 1890s style—even when it came to heavy industry!

Whether you’re planning a wedding or a night of cocktails and scientific discovery, the team at Pumping Station are happy to help customise your space with seating, lighting, AV, marquees and more. Their exclusive caterer can help you design drinks and canapes—or a sit-down feast— and can suggest event suppliers or collaborate with your team to make sure the flowers, food, music and styling come together perfectly.
