Looking for a seminar or meeting room in the CBD at a reasonable price?

A five minute walk from Perth Train Station you will find the State Library of Western Australia. We have a range of meeting rooms with capacities ranging from 12 to 207 people.

At the top end is the State Library Lecture Theatre. This facility comes with built in audio visual (AV) equipment that is very simple to use – no need for expensive AV equipment or an AV technician. The Telecoil Hearing Loop (Audio induction Loop) Hearing Loop is available in the Theatre.
