717 Flinders Street,

The heritage-listed Mission to Seafarers building (c.1917) on Flinders Street in Docklands serves a special place in the life and community of those who live and work at sea. Australia relies on shipping and seafarers to connect to the world and to bring goods to our homes for the economy to thrive, and for the health of our island nation. The Mission to Seafarers provides welfare services to support the tireless work and hardships faced by those seafarers. The dedicated team of staff and volunteers provide comfort, a friendly face and a sense of community to the thousands of seafarers who visit the Port of Melbourne annually.   The enchanting Arts and Crafts style design also offers a unique venue for functions and events of all styles and sizes. Fully licensed and resplendent following extensive renovations, it features a sunbathed courtyard full of rustic charm, a secret garden, private balcony, historic chapel, the magnificent Norla Dome and the large Main Hall – the possibilities are endless. Open to the public 10:00am-10:00pm everyday of the year, visitors are invited to explore this unique treasure in the heart of Melbourne....
