Facilities

The Bastow building in North Melbourne was designed by Henry Bastow — one of Victoria’s foremost architects of civil and public buildings —as State School no. 307 in the 1880s.

In 2012 Maddison Architects completed a restoration and redevelopment of the building and, like Bastow’s original design, the new facility is both elegant and highly considered. It strikes the perfect balance between the building’s rich architectural history and all the advantages of the contemporary refurbishment and state-of-the-art digital technology.

Today the extraordinary facility is used by educational leaders to connect, collaborate and learn through Bastow’s courses and events.

The facility is also hired by groups from within the Department, the local community and other organisations.

In 2016 Bastow moved into a second building at 582 Queensberry St, across from the first facility, to accommodate our growing participant numbers.

Bastow offers a range of formal learning spaces which have access to an interactive whiteboard, data  projection, video conferencing and networking capabilities.

Please note that food and beverages are not allowed in all our formal learning spaces
