Conference Venue

The Glasshouse

Olympic Boulevard, Olympic Park Melbourne, Victoria

One of the newest venues in Melbourne, the ‘Glasshouse’, is located just minutes from the CBD on the banks of the Yarra River. Overlooking iconic Olympic Park, The Glasshouse is just a short walk from the CBD and is only minutes away from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Federation Square, Southbank, Rod Laver Arena and the MCG.

The Glasshouse Melbourne


A packed agenda of food, wine, sports and arts is your introduction to the best of Melbourne – from its creative, exciting city centre, to its buzzing neighbourhood hubs.

Visitors will find Melbourne an exciting city to explore. Modern architecture and design is juxtaposed with heritage buildings reflecting Australia’s cultural history. But beneath the city’s impressive façade, lies the true heart and soul of the city; laneways which snake the city grid to reveal cafes and bars, fashion houses, boutiques, innovative cuisine, galleries, theatres and museums.

Things to do

Melbourne is a city that knows how to live. Choose from high-end cuisine to basement rock gigs, plays, festivals and blockbuster sporting events – all happening across a city full of parks, gardens and historic architecture. Click here for information on Melbourne’s best attractions.
