Less than an hour north of Melbourne, the historic Newham Mechanics Institute is one of the best kept secrets of the Macedon Ranges, right on the doorstep of the iconic tourist attraction of Hanging Rock.

The Mechanics Institute is owned and managed by the local community. A charming and affordable country hall for hire and a popular, intimate performance venue, the NMI hosts regular community events, top comedy shows, musical performances from local and national artists, theatre and big screen entertainment. A packed annual program offers something special for both locals and visitors to the region.
