Civic Hall

Civic Hall at night

The Civic Hall is open and following strict COIVD-19 safety guidelines.

Ballarat's Civic Hall has re-emerged as one of the City's most popular and adaptable event spaces.

Following a major renovation in 2019, the Ballarat Civic Hall hosts an annual season of diverse, entertaining and world-class events and performances for local, regional, national and international organisations.

The venue is an inviting space for audiences, performers, stall holders and conference delegates, offering one of the largest flat floor auditoriums in regional Victoria. The design allows flexibility and the capacity to host multiple events each day, including small meetings to full theatrical performances and Gala events.


An integral part of Ballarat's arts precinct, the Ballarat Civic Hall is conveniently located close to the Art Gallery of Ballarat and Her Majesty's Theatre, the Ballarat train station and a 300-space carpark just 400 metres away on Creswick Road. The Ballarat Civic Hall is managed by the City of Ballarat.
