Booking Cardinia

Welcome to Booking Cardinia – Cardinia Shire Council’s new online booking request site! 

We have a range of indoor and outdoor spaces available for hire in Cardinia Shire, including community halls, meeting rooms, club rooms and spaces in parks and reserves. These can be hired for one-off or recurring activities including community meetings and events, playgroups, parties and health & fitness.

You can make booking requests for most Council-managed facilities via Booking Cardinia, including these major Council venues. (But before you do, please read the information on this page).

  • The Booking Cardinia site is for making booking *requests* only - not actual bookings. Your booking request is not a confirmation of a booking. Our team will contact you to discuss your booking request. 
  • Once your booking request is submitted, you will be contacted within 7 days. Booking requests must be made at least 3 business days in advance. 
  • To request a quote for hire: Make a booking request on Booking Cardinia. You'll need to accept the quote to finalise the booking. 

How to find the right space for your event 

I don't have a particular space in mind, so just want to browse suitable spaces 

Use the search bar at the top of the page

  1. Start your search by entering the mandatory fields:
    1. the date of your event
    2. the event time
    3. the number of attendees you expect at your event.
  2. You can leave the remaining fields blank, or use the extra filters, before hitting ‘Search’.
  3. Browse through spaces to see images and activities available at each space.
  4. After you have found your preferred space/s – tap the ‘Enquire’ button, enter your details, then submit.
