Venue hire / functions

Located in the heart of Melbourne’s inner west in Yarraville and Footscray, YCC is the ideal venue for your meetings, conferences, events, training sessions, private parties and art exhibitions.

YCC is spread across three locations:

59 Francis St, Yarraville 9 Victoria St, Footscray 114 Blackwood St, Yarraville

Our unique heritage venue at Francis Street features 8 rooms available for hire at very reasonable rates. With original bluestone floors, a magnificent cantilevered staircase, high ceilings and an abundance of natural light, this really is a venue with a difference. Our Blackwood Street facility, once an old quarryman’s residence, has three rooms suitable for a range of purposes.

Our premises in Victoria Street, Footscray contains 6 brand new classrooms, all fitted out with interactive projectors and whiteboards which are ideal for meetings, conferences or courses.

Because our rooms vary in size and function, they are suitable for a diverse range of purposes. You can enjoy a private party such as a wedding, birthday or any other celebration. Or you could start your own regular community group – a book club, craft circle or playgroup.
