A striking new event space in South Melbourne. 

It’s been over a year in the making (and counting…) and now we’re super excited to finally let everyone know about the announcement of Half Acre.

The grandeur of the old Mill – with its exposed brick walls and soaring stained timber ceilings, dating to the early 1900s – sets the scene for a relaxed, comfortable, intimate, and unique wedding and event experience.

Half Acre provides the setting for food&desire to deliver a distinctive catering presentation with emphasis on seasonal Australian produce from local suppliers and growers. Now in its 18th year, food&desire consistently delivers spectacular events on every scale, with a reputation for excellence that has made it one of city’s catering leaders. That reputation is rooted in a devotion to the finest food and wine, alongside unparalleled service.

Half Acre will open on the 1st of August 2018.
