The Centre Ivanhoe
The Centre Ivanhoe is a function venue which consists of five separate event spaces, each with varying capacities. These are listed in order of size:
- The Great Hall (800 guests);
- The Streeton Room (300 guests);
- The McCubbin Room (150 guests);
- The Conder Room (120 guests); and
- The Withers Room (80 guests).
All of the rooms are accessible and the McCubbin Room is considered the most accessible. Within the building, there is a large foyer, a lift, storage areas, single sex toilet facilities as well as two unisex accessible toilets.
Please note, The Centre Ivanhoe is a heritage building and with this presents some access challenges. When making a booking, please discuss any mobility/access needs with the bookings officer. The main doors are open Monday to Friday, from 9am-5pm. The other spaces within the building will only be open when there is a function booked.
For more information about hiring rooms and venue catering, call the venue manager Epicure on (03) 9684 9521 or visit the Epicure website.
The building is located on a hill. There is a path that leads to the main entrance - it is on a steep incline so a person may need assistance to use this particularly if in a wheelchair or using a mobility aid.
The car park on the site is to the rear of the building, with one designated accessible parking bay (DAPB) directly outside the McCubbin Room entrance. The distance from the rear DAPB to the main entrance is over 100m with no resting place. There are a further two DAPBs located close to the adjoining Ivanhoe Service Centre.
The entrance door is heavy and hard to open.
There are two unisex accessible toilets - one is located in the foyer on the right hand side. The other accessible toilet is located on the bottom level (McCubbin Room).
Male and female toilet facilities are available for all rooms.
There is a reception area on the left hand side of the Great Hall foyer. This is for The Centre Ivanhoe bookings and enquiries.
There is stair access to all levels.
The lift is located at the left hand side of the foyer behind the staircase. There is signage to direct you to the lift. The lift is used to access Level 1 in the Council Chambers next door if required. Please contact staff for assistance.
There is lift access to all three levels:
- Streeton Room (lower floor)
- Great Hall (ground floor)
- Withers Room (upper level)
There is a ramp to the Great Hall stage via left hand side of Great Hall Foyer and Great Hall alcove.
