Event Facilities in Hobart

Wanting a room with arto-deco styling and a stage, portable dance floor and bar facilities? The Derwent Room begs for some old-fashioned fun, located in the original section of Wrest Point. 

The Derwent Room features classic art deco style, and can be found in the original section of the Wrest Point complex. Being fully self-contained, this conference facility is an ideal fit for between 30 and 240 delegates. 

Talk to us about the ways this room can be configured. Whether you’re wanting to stage it as a theatre, block table seating, or even a classroom structure, the Derwent Room is adaptable. If you’re looking at a sit-down function, the room can hold a maximum of 240 guests for dinner. 

But what makes the Derwent Room special are a few key features. If you’re on the hunt for a social event venue, with its portable dance floor, stage and bar facilities, the room invites a little fun. Plus, if your event is held during winter months, the original fireplace adds a certain charm and ambience. 

As with other Wrest Point rooms, the Derwent Room can be divided into three separate venues depending on your needs, with built-in sliding walls. As such, it is suited to small and medium sized conferences. With three in-built full sized projectors and screens as well as a recent refurbishment to restore its classic art-deco style, the Derwent Room can’t wait to have you.
