We have used Cargo Hall twice now and the team have been incredibly helpful in creating and supporting our events. The food is terrific and the location and views are great too! I highly recommend & would happily host another event there.

Thank you Cargo Hall and all of your team members for making our first cocktail function such a success. The venue, food and beverages were just spectacular. The food stations especially were a big hit! A special thanks to our event coordinator for all their hard work and exceptional patience and advice. All of your staff went out of their way to make sure everyone was happy and all needs catered for. Could not recommend a better place for a function.

I have been to a few events here. Always good food and beverage catering, audio from the stage is clear and screens are easy to see from anywhere in the room.
