Royal Hall of Industries

Royal Hall of IndustriesAffectionately remembered by Sydneysiders as the Showbag Pavilion, the Royal Hall of Industries is majestic, it's grand and most impressively it is rich in history.

Boasting a striking vaulted ceiling and magnificent cathedral windows, this beautifully restored venue is proudly reminiscent of past glory. Today it hosts many of Sydney's prestigious special events, offering a blank canvas where one is limited only by imagination. Feasts, fashion, fairs and festivals...

Anything could happen in the Royal Hall of Industries...

Venue management
