About The Great Hall

Located on the ground floor, The Great Hall is the grandest of spaces with soaring ceilings, decorative architectural details and striking chandeliers.

The recent upgrades allow event organisers the option to connect through to award-winning PHIVE, and provide access to the Ngurra Gunya Room, our brand-new modern glass atrium with views and entrance onto vibrant Parramatta Square.

The pillarless Great Hall comfortably seats 275 people for theatre or cocktail events and 220 for banquet events.

When hiring The Great Hall, our Ngurra Gunya Room is included as a pre-function or break out space. Additional spaces such as both meeting rooms and Charles Byrnes Room can be added as an addition.

Catering options

Parramatta Town Hall has a flexible catering policy, allowing venue hirers the option to select their preferred caterer. Some event types may require a Gold Licensed caterer or equivalent. This arrangement provides event organisers the opportunity to tailor their menus for specific needs, dietary requirements and diverse cultural backgrounds.
