Arts Centre

For more than 30 years, Arts Centre Melbourne has been Melbourne’s leading venue for world-class theatre, dance, music and more. In the Theatres Building, directly under the venue’s iconic Spire, are three separate theatres – the State Theatre, which boasts one of the world’s largest stages and hosts performances by Opera Australia and The Australian Ballet, the Playhouse and the intimate Fairfax Studio.

On the banks of the Yarra River, Hamer Hall is a premier venue for musical performances, including the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, and the Sidney Myer Music Bowl is popular for open-air concerts.

Under the Spire, the Australian Music Vault free exhibition celebrates the Australian contemporary music story. Unlock the stories of Australian music with immersive digital experiences, rare archival footage and see iconic music objects up close.

A visit to Arts Centre Melbourne doesn't stop at the stage; there's dining options at bars and cafes on site and the Sunday Market every Sunday with local artisans showcasing their unique, handmade goods.
