Chapel


The Chapel is one of Victoria’s most notable heritage buildings. Enter the Chapel for your special event and be swept back 140 years to an era of charm and splendour. Built in 1863, the building is often seen as one of the choicest examples of ecclesiastical Gothic architecture in the city. Replete with early architectural flourishes and features, since removal of the pews, the Chapel is able to combine its historical elegance with modern functionality.
