Venue Features
The Scene:
The SUBSTATION has strikingly, large ornate windows as soon as you walk in the doors. It's large industrial ceilings that will impress anyone as they enter. The building hosts visual art shows in the gallery space throughout the year, which can be used for guests to wander through before the main event commences. 
Design:
The historic one-hundred-year-old building shows the importance to the then developing train systems of Melbourne and how architecturally designed buildings were used to demonstrate industrial revolutionised feats such as this.

Reconstructed using as many original materials as possible to give the wonderful industrial yet charming feel it has today. Metal beams are partnered with beautiful glass windows throughout the building that are used with minimal additional decor efforts to create a gorgeous event.
Standout Venue Features:
All indoors for all year round events. Can host multiple event spaces at once. A blank canvas for you to design your own styled event.
