Royal Hall of Industries

Affectionately remembered by Sydneysiders as the Showbag Pavilion, the Royal Hall of Industries is majestic, grand and rich in history.

Considered to be the pinnacle of construction techniques when it opened in 1913, The Royal Hall of Industries has been an exhibition hall, morgue, roller- and ice-skating rink, boxing venue and ballroom. 

Sympathetically restored, the building boasts a vaulted ceiling and magnificent cathedral windows. Today it hosts many of Sydney's prestigious special events, providing a blank canvas where your creative vision can become a reality…

Anything could happen in the Royal Hall of Industries…
