The State Library Victoria is one of this city’s premier heritage destinations and attracts almost two million visitors each year. As the oldest public library in Australia, it’s one of Victoria’s cultural icons and is dedicated to history, culture, creativity and learning.

Now, halfway through the Library’s Vision 2020 redevelopment project, the winning combination of magnificent 19th-century galleries and spacious contemporary venues has been refreshed and expanded to include the elegant event-ready Isabella Fraser Room, and in spring 2019, State Library Victoria will welcome The Ian Potter Queen’s Hall, meticulously restored to its 1860s glory.

Partnering with the innovative and award winning Showtime Event Group, State Library Victoria’s event venues deliver unforgettable events.
