Geelong Wedding Receptions and Function Room Hire
Notable chefs and an array of hospitality and entertainment experts have guided the evolution and advancement of The Wool Exchange Entertainment Complex – a venue that has a long, rich history in Geelong.
In establishing The Wool Exchange Entertainment Complex as Geelong’s premier wedding reception and function venue, leading industry professionals have looked to the beautiful building for inspiration and helped create an atmosphere that reflects the building’s opulence and grandeur.
Our chefs have the ability to create menus that truly reflect the events being held at The Wool Exchange Entertainment Complex function rooms – regardless of whether it’s a wedding reception, party, corporate event or lunch in The Wool Exchange Café.
The imposing building that houses The Wool Exchange Entertainment Complex was built in 1927-28 and was a centrepiece of the wool industry, which thrived throughout western Victoria in this era.
What is now the upstairs ballroom was once the venue where wool traders bought and sold their wares during public auctions. The auditorium had steep, ramped seating – that is now long gone, although the barrel vaulted ceiling decorated with neo-Greco detail remains and adds to the grandeur of the room.
Corporate groups also regularly have Geelong corporate functions at The Wool Exchange Entertainment Complex, using the centre’s function rooms for hire for large and small events including seminars and business breakfasts.
