The Culture Centre – Townsville is a distinctive venue themed with fascinating traditional and contemporary

Indigenous Culture.


The Centre incorporates two functions areas

  • The Riverside Deck overlooks the harbour with the capacity to host 150 people with tables or 200 cocktail style and scattered seating.

    On the Riverside Deck, your delegates will enjoy their cocktails and cuisine surrounded by the Castle Hill vista and the Townville Yacht Club Marina as their backdrop. It is especially impressive in the evening under the night sky.

  • Performance Area is an indoor venue equipped with a stage and seating for 100 people with tables, or up to 200 for performances – chairs only.

    The Performance Area is equally impressive as your delegates are surrounded by a showcase of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander art, design and exhibitions. Alternately these two areas can be used at the same time for your event.

If you choose, the Centre can cater a selection of traditional bush tucker foods prepared with Native Australian ingredients. We can also arrange contemporary Australian catering options.


We provide a wide range of cultural performance with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island dance and music both traditional or contemporary.

The Cultural Centre also features an impressive commercial kitchen off the River Deck so you can self-cater or your caterers can serve straight from the kitchen.


We have various Hire rates for the Venue Spaces, including a complete Venue Hire Package which includes exclusive use of the Performance Space, River Deck and Commercial Kitchen.

Please note that the Interpretive Gallery can also be hired for certain circumstances, such as Cultural Awareness Training, Meetings and Selection Committees. This space provides an exremely quiet and unique environment to conduct small scale meetings.
