Queenscliff Town Hall


Queenscliff Town Hall upgrade

The Queenscliff Music Festival Inc. (QMF), in partnership with the Borough of Queenscliffe is working towards the upgrade of the Queenscliff Town Hall as a purposeful creative space. 

The QMF has been successful in securing two grants to undertake an initial (Phase 1) upgrade that will include:

  • The installation of sound & lighting systems to support a broad range of performances;
  • Screen and projector installation to support films and presentations;
  • Items to support the functionality and improve sound quality; and
  • Improved venue marketing collateral 

The project is being managed under a governance structure that includes a Project Control Group and a Project Working Group comprising BOQ officers & QMF representatives that have been meeting regularly for last 2 months. 

QMF has also received grant funding as part of this project, to deliver a series of concerts beginning late 2021. It is envisioned that these concerts would be held on weekends, approximately once a month.

The overall project stands to benefit many existing and new Hall users including community groups, local schools, and local creative artists/performers, events such as the Bellarine Lighthouse Film Festival and Queenscliff Literary Festival and the Borough of Queenscliffe.

Benefits include:

  • The Hall upgrades will significantly reduce hire of equipment costs for event organisers
  • Improved accessibility including Hearing Loop
  • Improved equipment to facilitate Council meetings
  • Improved use and functionality of the Hall. ie. chair movement & storage
  • Improved awareness of the Hall with dedicated venue website to promote event activities on Queenscliff Town Hall social media channels and website.
  • Improved facilities will strengthen the Borough of Queenscliffe arts and culture destination reputation and will assist in securing new key concerts/events and ultimately may attract many hundreds of visitors to the towns.

User engagement

The project plan initial engagement objective was to seek feedback from a range of current users of the Town hall.

Two categories of Hall users were identified – Primary and Secondary

  • Primary Hall users were identified and met as a group to discuss the way the Hall is currently used, as well as their vision for improving the Hall as a Creative Space.

  • Secondary Hall users were also engaged via a survey seeking feedback on current and potential issues.

The consultation with the both Primary and Secondary users identified and confirmed the following key challenges regarding current use of the Town Hall:

  • Sound quality
  • Functionality of the Hall
  • Seating
  • Storage
  • Booking arrangements


The Queenscliff Music Festival has opened requests for quotation for key aspects of this exciting new project at the Queenscliff Town Hall. QMF are seeking suitable qualified providers to supply and install professional components for the use of QMF, other community groups, and the public. Below are three tenders that are currently available for quotation and invite all suitable candidates to submit a quote for consideration.

Quotations are due by 4:00pm on the 13th of September 2021 for an estimated project commencement in late September.

Ticket Resale

Ticket Resale

Following the sell-out of this year's Festival, we have now partnered with TIXEL to offer a Resale facility.

The Tixel platform will assist those of you...




Can I resell my tickets

Our official ticket resale partner is Tixel. This is the only place where you can buy and sell guaranteed, genuine pre-loved tickets.

Sell your tickets!

Can I choose who I sell my ticket to?

If you have already found a buyer for your ticket but want to complete the transaction safely, you can create a private sale by selecting the ‘make my listing private’ option at the final step. Otherwise, your listing will be public and available for all potential buyers to see.

Who can use this facility?

This facility is available to original ticket holders who purchased tickets directly via TryBooking.

I’ve sold my ticket. When will I receive my money?

Your money will be available to withdraw from your Tixel account the day after the event. You can always see this date in 'My Tickets' on your Tixel Account. Once withdrawn, it will take the standard processing times for the funds to reach your account. This can vary based on your bank but can take anywhere between 1 and 4 business days.

Are my tickets guaranteed to sell?

No, tickets are not guaranteed to sell. Supply and demand will dictate whether or not your tickets are sold prior to the event.

How can I purchase pre-loved tickets?

Missed out on tickets for the 2022 Queenscliff Music Festival? Tixel is our approved resale platform allowing customers to resell their tickets in a safe and honest marketplace. As per the law, tickets cannot be sold at a higher price than 10% of the retail rate, with this platform ensuring customers the protection against ticket gouging and scalping.

How can I avoid scammers?

Ticket scammers are out and about, don't become a victim! If you find a buyer or seller online, insist they transact with you via Tixel to know you are buying a genuine ticket. Sellers have the option to create a private sale by selecting the ‘make my listing private’ option at the final step.

How do adult + child tickets work?

For the seller: Your adult + child ticket will be listed as an adult ticket only, giving you a better chance of selling them. 

For the purchaser: You can purchase adult tickets through Tixel, and reach out to us via Contact Us to organise additional child tickets.
