Venue & Destination
CENTREPIECE at Melbourne Park is a new state-of-the-art conference centre, primely positioned at the heart of Melbourne’s premier sports and entertainment precinct, with sweeping views of the city skyline.
The venue’s unique architectural design embodies the allure of Australia’s natural landscape, surrounding open green spaces of flora and fauna and is flanked by the iconic Rod Laver Arena and the MCG.
Inviting the outdoors inside, natural light cascades through the floor-to-ceiling windows and atrium skylight, connecting the venue to its surrounds.
Discover a unique connection to Victoria through the culinary experience, enhanced by locally sourced seasonal produce, driven by a paddock to plate philosophy created in the state-of-the-art production kitchen.
CENTREPIECE is located seamlessly to the Melbourne CBD and easily accessible by tram, train, river, car, bus and pedestrian pathways. Stroll less than 1km by foot to Flinders Street Station or enjoy the dedicated onsite vehicle parking, complete with bus and ride-share access. A unique and versatile venue within a parkland, yet the city-centre at its fingertips.
Melbourne is located at the head of Port Phillip Bay, on the southeastern coast of Victoria, and is very accessible with multiple daily direct flights from all of Australia and New Zealand’s main centres.
The city of Melbourne is a blend of bustling laneways, world-class restaurants and captivating museums. The locals love their coffee and serve it up in abundance at cosy cafes. There’s always a sense of excitement here – whether it’s in the city’s fascinating flavours or fierce sporting rivalries.
Given the lack of international travel for the foreseeable future, the organisers encourage you to extend your stay around the meeting to enjoy the many varied experiences Melbourne and Victoria has to offer.
The major sport seasons will be in full swing. You will be able to experience an AFL game at the magnificent MCG, or watch the NRL, Super Rugby or A-League at AAMI Park. The NBL finals will be on, and the Super Netball season will have started.
A visit to Melbourne would not be complete without sampling the vibrant hospitality scene at the many restaurants, bars and cafes.
You could dive into the cultural side of Melbourne – be it the Theatre, Art Galleries, Live Music, Festivals or Markets.
In addition, you could take a drive and stay in a B&B to visit the vineyards in the beautiful and iconic wine producing regions of the Mornington Peninsula, Bellarine Peninsula or Yarra Valley.
