Alternative Graduation Ceremony Facilities for Hobart Schools

As schools are searching for alternative venues to hold graduation ceremonies that are unable to be held within the school for various reasons, a few stand out amongst the others. There are several venues that are suitable for graduation ceremonies, including theaters, resorts, and historical sites. If the go-to Hobart function rooms aren’t available, here are some alternatives that are sure to have some availability this graduation season.

Peacock Theater

Located within the city and carved into the landscape, this theater offers seating for 133 for the class and their families. With the large stage and professional lighting, you can be sure that everyone will see each graduate walk across the stage.

Glen Albyn Estate

Close to the city, this estate offers four venues on its grounds and can have events that range from a small gathering of 80 people up to 700 people. This makes it suitable for any size of graduation, and the different themes will ensure that each school can find just the right venue for their school. Choose from the outdoor deck, the atrium, or the shed that allows you to add your own decorations for any theme you like.

Waterside Pavilion

The waterfront district houses the Waterside Pavilion, a large empty space that lets you create the theme and decorations that you want. Converted from a brick warehouse, this location has an open floor plan and can fit up to 100 people for small graduations.

Hobart Function and Conference Center

For a historic venue for a graduation ceremony, the Hobart Function and Conference Center is along the water and offers a beautiful view and will create opportunities for photographs that will be remembered forever. This location also rents audio-video equipment for the reception and can offer a graduation location that holds up to 330 people.

RACV Hobart Hotel

For a traditional ballroom venue, any graduation would benefit from this elegant location that offers space for both a ceremony and a reception to celebrate the graduates. Photos can be taken on-site, and there is seating for up to 250 people.

Hobart Function and Conference Center

With space for up to 350 people and more for some of the off-site locations, there is plenty of room for your graduates and their families at this function and conference center. Enjoy the views of the water with full height windows, temperature control, and the easy-to-reach location that is close to the city center. This offers plenty of parking for all the guests and allows those who are out of town to find a close place to stay. With space for both the ceremony and the reception, complete with a dance floor, this space can host the full graduation party and will have room for everyone. As many meetings and gatherings have gone online, and those that are in-person require more space for people to remain distanced from each other, venues that offer equipment to film or live stream the event may have an advantage over those that do not.
