    CENTREPIECE at Melbourne Park has celebrated a triumph on the local and national tourism stage, taking home Gold in the ‘Best New Tourism Business’ in the 2022 Victorian Tourism Awards and Silver in the ‘Best New Tourism Business’ category at the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards.

    CENTREPIECE is celebrated for its architectural design, flexible layout, and location at the heart of Melbourne’s entertainment and sporting epicentre. The award-winning destination opened in January 2022 and since then has hosted over 130 events including the AFL Awards, Toyota Retailer of the Year, L’Oreal staff forum and the Sir Jackie Stewart Race Against Dementia Tribute Event.

    Specialising in large-scale events, the venue champions Victoria-first and creates unique experiences that demonstrate tourism excellence in every aspect. The space is also suited to a range of activities such as gala dinners, conferences and performances with catering options for up to 1,480 guests for a seated event.
