Canterbury Street Stables

There are a few stables remaining in the backyards and alleys of Melbourne, with a couple still in use, but none as grand or likely to be as old as those found in and around Flemington. Canterbury Street Stables is one of these such gems, and whilst it is no longer in use for the fillies and stallions of the track, it’s well in use for the ladies and gents of Melbourne to host any of a large variety of events as they see fit.

With the capacity to host up to 100 guests for a seated function, and separate mezzanine area that can easily be set up as a pre or post dinner lounge, this unique space is sure to be a winner.

Julius Gove, a horse ‘exporter’, purchased the house that used to sit in front of this building, built in 1903. He improved the property at the rear of the house to service his business including this stable. The residential character of the stables is evoked by the typical Edwardian period chimney. Architecturally this is a near complete example from a limited group of surviving 19th Century urban stables of this size. The stables are now used by the local community for a variety of purposes, and sited in a lovely park.

Canterbury Street Stables is a large hall that can be used for events such as:

dancing
martial arts
children's birthdays
community meetings
other recreation activities
