Queen Victoria Women's Centre


Queen Victoria Women's Centre

The Queen Victoria Women’s Centre is an iconic Melbourne landmark that testifies to the enduring contribution of women’s enterprise to Victoria’s social, economic and cultural heritage.

The Queen Victoria Women’s Centre is a vibrant place and space used by women to shape the world they want for themselves and for the women of the future.

The Queen Victoria Women’s Centre (QVWC) is a not-for-profit organisation that provides information, support and resources for Victorian women and women's organisations. The Centre is a hub for women’s issues, ideas and leadership across ages, cultures, interests and localities.

A place for women, by women - we work with women and women focused organisations to build their ability to achieve their objectives.

Established in 1994, the Centre’s heritage building is the sole remaining tower of the former Queen Victoria Memorial Hospital.

Queen Victoria Women's Centre


Built in 1848 as the original Melbourne Hospital, from 1946 the building now known as the Queen Victoria Women’s Centre was the premises of the Queen Victoria Hospital, which was one of three hospitals in the world founded, managed and staffed by women.

The Centre’s beautiful building is home to a range of women's organisations and offers venues for hire and free exhibitions in our Women's Gallery that enable the public to share and support this vibrant place for the women of our community.

The Queen Victoria Women’s Centre offers 3 convenient, cost effective venue spaces in the beautiful setting of a heritage building.
The Victoria Room, The Courtyard Room, The Exhibition Space

Our office is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm
