Right in the centre of the Melbourne city district lies an exquisite European ballroom with high expansive
ceilings, a sweeping staircase and incredible city views that can be seen through original, antique leadlight windows.
On the sixth floor of the Myer Emporium in the center of the city you
will find an amazing art deco room filled with art deco furniture and
fittings as well as not just 1 art deco chandelier but 3 magnificent ones hanging from the ceiling.
The Mural hall was built in 1933 and was the venue for fashion parades and performances and these days the hall is used for weddings, functions and other special public occassions.

During the refurbishment program for Myers, these art deco light fixtures were re-wired, repaired and cleaned. A protective wax coating was applied to them to help preserve their grandeur.
The chandeliers can provide up to 10 different lighting effects.

And Don't Forget To Be Sun Smart
You cannot feel or see UV (Ultraviolet radiation). We can see the sun's light and we can feel the sun's warmth (the infrared radiation). Our senses don't pick up on UV radiation and this is why it is so damaging.
Right across Australia this UV radiation varies, it being determined by the time of day, time of year, the weather including cloud cover, how close to the equator the position is and other considerable scientific factors.
