MPC live events on hold

We have temporarily closed the Melbourne Press Club office and made changes to services to protect club members, patrons of our events and staff from risks associated with the current coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19). 

As part of these measures, all face-to-face events have been temporarily suspended, however we we are currently running a series of webinar events. Please stay tuned to our website for further information. 

The health and safety of our valued members, friends and staff are our top priority. We wish you all safety and good health at this difficult time. 


Our dedicated staff will be working from home. We are available via email at and will endeavour to respond to any queries promptly.
