The 242 Telstra Conference Centre is one of the preeminent conference facilities within the Melbourne CBD. Housed within the heritage listed Watkins building on Exhibition Street, we provide quality event space and facilities for all types of meetings, presentations and video conferences.

The 242 Conference Centre provides a level of experience and capability that is difficult to match, with our selection of board rooms, conference rooms and the breath-taking Theatrette. All of which are enabled with the best in Telstra supported Audio Visual and IT resources.

The Theatrette is the jewel in the crown of the 242 Conference Centre, unique to the Melbourne CBD as a theatre capable of holding 203 people while still maintaining an intimate atmosphere.

Its two conference rooms provide a space that can hold 20-60, ideal for training sessions and workshops, and are popular with presenters who likes to move and interact with their audience. Additionally the two rooms can be combined, which allows for presentations for groups up to 120 people in theatre-style seating.

Its Board Rooms are our most elegant meetings rooms with heritage-listed views onto Exhibition Street. These rooms are capable of hosting 6-14 people and provide a powerful environment for important meetings with external clients.
