Inner Suburban Melbourne

The inner city suburbs located on the fringe of Melbourne's city centre offer a great variety of conference and business meeting venues from the inexpensive to luxury 5 star. Some of the suburbs on the city fringe include, Southbank (just across the Yarra River From Melbourne's CBD) Carlton, South Yarra (located on the Yarra River), St Kilda (ideally located on Melbourne's Harbour front), Albert Park which is the location for Melbourne's Grand Prix and Richmond. All of these locations are easily accessible by public transport and close to the city centre. From large conferences to small business meetings there are venues to cater for all your needs.

The inner city suburbs of Melbourne offer Conference organisers the opportunity to provide a venue that enjoys the benefits of proximity to the city centre along with a more relaxing suburban atmosphere.

The Blackman Hotel - 5 Star Hotel and Conference Venue

Choose from over 200 suites and studios that are the very definition of boutique interiors, many of which have private terraces that give sweeping views not just of the cityscape but also out to Port Phillip. The rooms, corridors and spaces are all dripping in Blackman originals and much of the furniture is designed with his indefatigable style in mind. This even applies to the two hottest restaurants in the area, attached to the hotel, and the scooters and Smart cars that are available to hire for guests and elegates.

From here visitors are just a short journey by tram, bus or train to all that Melbourne is famous for including St. Kilda and the eponymous beach, Federation Square, The MCG, Royal Botanic gardens and much else besides. St. Kilda Road itself is home to a myriad of local hotspots, nightspots and trendy cafes bars and restaurants that exude the European style that the Victorian capital is famed for.

Again, design cues in each of the six conference and meeting spaces are taken from Blackman’s work. The natural light, striking stylings and unusual environment here lend themselves to creative thinking and to productive discussion and thought. This is coupled with all of the room flexibility, service, audio-visual technology and gourmet catering options that one would expect from a luxury hotel in this area.

Whether you need a meeting room for 8 or 80 there are options to suit. Galleries I to IV are striking spaces that can be used individually or combined for a variety of purposes. The Reading Penthouse offers the views one would expect and the Garden Penthouse features a wrap around balcony which can act as a superb and invigorating breakout area or simply as an exciting outside area for cocktails of functions. Delegates can access these unique and original spaces easily by public transport and there is the much needed inner-city onsite parking.
