Facilities / Leases
The corporation has a number of facilities for potential short-term lease or hire including offices, warehouses, hardstand areas and open spaces. Information on these facilitates and approval to lease or hire can be obtained by contacting the corporation directly.
Our most popular spaces for community and cultural events are Red Square and the Goods Shed, which are in close proximity to a 250-space car park.
The Goods Shed
The Goods Shed is a c.1915 corrugated iron warehouse building with large open spaces and amazing exposed Oregon timber beams. It has capacity to accommodate 1555 people (standing room) and its industrial feel has lent itself for use as a film set, photo shoots, music events, markets and other festivals.
With access off Evans Street, Red Square is a community space for all ages to enjoy. It serves as a venue for a variety of interim uses, such as pop-up markets, cultural and social events, and is next door to the Hobart Brewing Company.
