Located on Melbourne’s iconic South Wharf Promenade, Cargo Hall is designed for showstopping weddings. Boasting Yarra River frontage and city views, this warehouse space effortlessly blends rustic elements with modern luxuries. Ideal for ceremonies and receptions, couples love the private bridal suite and the flexibility of the space. Cargo Hall is part of the award-winning Showtime Event Group.

Nestled amongst high-end restaurants and cafes, world-famous tourist attractions, and showstopping events venues is Cargo Hall. A former docking shed, this spacious warehouse has been given the modern Melbourne treatment and now hosts events of distinction. Designed to entertain, Cargo Hall has sound and lighting rigs in the soaring ceilings, so if you’re planning for live entertainment at your reception, then you’ve found the perfect place.


A venue that combines waterfront and city views is always a winner, and Cargo Hall offers both from its glass-fronted atrium. Located right on the Yarra River, you can watch the world go by on the gorgeous Promenade as your wedding kicks into gear behind you. The Hall is a flexible space that couples can use for both ceremonies and receptions. Many couples choose to stand an arbour against the wall beside the entrance, creating a long aisle from the private bridal suite at the rear of the room.


Featuring dark timber floorboards, large windows with black frames, and plenty of natural light, Cargo Hall combines rustic elements with modern aesthetics. Draped curtains, soft lighting, and floral arrangements infuse a bit of romance into the space. Hang them from the ceiling to evoke a sense of fairytale wonder.


Whilst you’re off snapping photos by the water, the Cargo Hall event space snap into action to transform the space for your reception. They can get started by serving some post-ceremony drinks and snacks to your guests.

Dana and the Showtime team were fantastic, personable and relaxed. Dana was especially amazing when it came to calming our nerves or dispelling our stresses on the lead up to the day. Everything ran like clockwork and we felt very well looked after. Organizing our wedding from interstate could have been stressful but the Showtime team did an incredible job putting the day together seamlessly, our party was excellent and we had so much fun! Can't recommend Showtime and Cargo hall enough.

Couldn't be happier with Cargo Hall. If you're looking for a space that's easy to make your own and a team that's all about trying to make your day exactly what you want it - then book Cargo Hall. We feel incredibly lucky to have booked a venue that was exactly what we were looking for. Everything in the lead up was perfect (big thanks to Rachel) and the day itself went off without a hitch thanks to the team. The food was delicious, as we've heard from guests, and everything else was exactly what we had expected. Lived up to our expectations and then some!

They were phenomenal! They went above and beyond for me and nothing was ever an issue and they were so patient with me as well. People who never RSVP'd arrived and they just immediately catered for them and told me to worry about it.
