Central Hall, formerly known as Cathedral Hall, is the main building of Australian Catholic University's St. Patrick's Campus, and a heritage-listed building in Fitzroy. While the main building where it stands was constructed in 1873 as a boot factory, the hall has been used variously since its inauguration in 1904 – for events of St Patrick's Cathedral, hosting of the Second Australasian Catholic Congress in 1904, as the site of the National Eucharistic Congress in 1934, a ballroom, and boxing match arena. Today, it is used for the University's theatre activities.
