  1. The McLauchlan Family Auditorium—our primary venue—is ideal for your live performance event, conference plenary session or keynote speaker address. It is a 701-seat purpose built Lyric Theatre with excellent acoustics. Seating is split over two levels, with easy stage access available. The stage house comprises our counter weight flying system, with 65 line sets, paving the way for a myriad of professional, theatrical production and presentation options from which to choose.
  2. The Anderson Theatre is our Black Box Studio Theatre, designed specifically with adaptability and versatility in mind. This intimate space, lends itself ideally to boutique theatre and concerts, breakout sessions, exhibitions, meetings and seminars on a smaller scale, without having to compromise on quality, production and presentation options.
  3. The Whitehaven Wine Room is ideally suited to meetings and seminars, catered events, such as cocktail functions and dinners, as well as trade exhibitions. It is also a wonderful space for small concerts. The inclusion of a fully removable wall provides further versatility as an extension to the main foyer.
  4. The Foyer is available for use as either part of a larger conference event, or smaller stand-alone events such as long-term exhibitions, small award presentations, cocktail functions and smaller dinners and concerts.
