Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
During the 2020 season, MPavilion responded to the needs of the time by hosting events at multiple locations.
Our 2020 season is now closed, but you can still visit these locations while we gear up for the launch of our next season, in November 2021.
Please note that some locations have set opening hours, so be sure to check them before your visit.
