Spend the night networking with your peers and overlooking Melbourne at Eureka 89. Eureka 89 is located on the top floor of Eureka Tower in Southbank Melbourne, incredibly exclusive and unique event space with 360-degree views across Melbourne City, the MCG, Botanical Gardens and Port Phillip Bay. Construction began in August 2002; the exterior of the tower was completed by 1 June 2006 and the building was officially opened on 11 October 2006. The Eureka Tower is a residential tower block complex on a 52,724ft² (4,900m²) site in the South Bank suburb of Port Philip, Melbourne, Australia. The tower is named after the Eureka Stockade rebellion during the 1854 Victoria gold rush (the building crown is gold coloured with a red stripe representing the gold and the bloodshed). The horizontal lines on the building represent the markings on a ruler and the blue facade with white lines is supposed to represent the blue and white flag of the stockade.
