ABOUT Pumping Station
Cocktail Event Venues

Located just 5 kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD is one of the city’s most iconic 19th century landmarks that is a hugely popular destination for functions and events. Classified by the National Trust, it’s a reminder of Melbourne's glamorous 1890s style—even when it came to heavy industry!

Pumping Station at Scienceworks offers city skyline views and a riverside location set to rival all other venues. Situated in the heart of Spotswood, what was once a sprawling far estate now plays home to a blank canvas venue that can accommodate a variety of function styles. From wedding and corporate events, to cocktail soirees with a hint of scientific discovery, Pumping Station is a must if you want your event to really make an impact.

Boasting an industrial interior complete with exposed beams, polished concrete floors and original brickwork, as well as a beautiful central courtyard, Pumping Station offers a flexible and inspiring canvas for any special occasion.

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.

The events team are happy to help customise your space with seating, lighting, AV, marquees and more. Their exclusive caterer can help you design your drinks and canape or sit-down feast menus to suit you, and they can even suggest event suppliers or collaborate with your team to make sure the flowers, food, music and styling are exactly to your taste.
