The Wool Exchange Entertainment Complex prides itself on being the leading live band venue in Geelong. They have a reputation for bringing premium live music to the city and their venue is ideal for a wide range of acts from modern-day indie bands with niche followings to Australia’s long and established iconic groups.
The Wool Exchange has a rich history in Geelong and a rich history in the city’s music scene. Locally owned and operated, the owners have worked hard to build an enviable reputation for their cafe, function rooms and wedding receptions in Geelong and while they are important elements of the business, live music continues to be a headline act at The Wool Exchange. Check out the website for a list of event details of coming shows or phone for information.
The imposing building that houses The Wool Exchange Entertainment Complex was built in 1927-28 and was a centre piece of the wool industry, which thrived throughout western Victoria in this era. What is now the upstairs split level function room was once the venue where wool traders bought and sold their wares during public auctions. The auditorium had steep, ramped seating – that is now long gone, although the original barrel vaulted ceiling decorated with neo-Greco detail remains and adds to the grandeur and acoustics of the room.
