Early last century, the electricity for Sydney’s tram system was generated in the Turbine Hall. One hundred years later, this vast space with its suspended aircraft provides a dramatic setting for any event.

Ideal for presentations, displays and product launches, the Turbine Hall’s spacious interior delivers a virtual blank canvas to create an amazing event.

The Junction provides a modern setting for small, medium and relaxed events.

The high ceiling complements the industrial feel, and paired with the Junction Courtyard, this venue allows interior and exterior spaces to blend and enrich the atmosphere of your event. It’s the venue that loves to dress up and get in character – from organising white gloved waiters for table service events, to recreating theatre stall service where waiters carry toolboxes filled with prawns on ice.

The MAAS Café is a bright airy café which includes an outdoor terrace. During the evening, the café kitchen and serving area is hidden and enclosed behind luminescent white panels.
