Venue Hire


Tranby has a proud 60 year history as a national centre for Indigenous education, community development and social action. Our distinctive and original venues truly reflect this at our charming campus in the back streets of Glebe.

From the historic Rev. Alf Clint Boardroom with its precious collection of beautiful Aboriginal art and historic photos to our specially designed “camp fire” training and class rooms, we have a range of remarkable and unique venues to suit your needs.

You can hold your next function, meeting or training group at a very special place.

Some of the students who have passed through our doors have come with stories of adversity. Within our walls, some have come to believe in themselves for the very first time. Thousands of students have left Tranby with their well-deserved certificates and diplomas and have inspired us and their communities with their dedication, hope and ambitions.

We hope that this history, culture and community success will inspire your next meeting or function.

And best of all, as Tranby is a not-for-profit organisation, you can take pride in the fact that all proceeds generated from venue hire go straight back into funding learning resources for our students and maintaining our beautiful campus.


Tranby has a wide variety of different room options available, ranging from our camp fire style traditional classrooms to our historic Rev. Alf Clint Boardroom, to our more modern business hub, Kevin Cook Boardroom.  We have something for everyone, and budgets to suit all.
