Self-sufficiency

Peter Mac encourages event clients to use the available venues in a self-sufficient manner. All event requirements are to be prearranged with the venue hire coordinator including audio visual support, cleaning and other facilities services. Peter Mac is first and foremost a public hospital and does not provide event management as part of its core business. 

Upon arrival, event organisers can proceed to the venues (located on level 7) via the public lifts, set up, complete their event and leave the venue in its original condition. Any additional facility services that are required to restore the room to its original condition may incur a variance charge.
