Arts Centre Melbourne is both a defining Melbourne landmark and Australia’s largest performing 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.
Next door 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.
Arts Centre Melbourne is open daily, hosting a diverse range of quality local and international performances, as well as offering visitors experiences including guided tours daily at 11:00am, free exhibitions, the Sunday Market every Sunday from 10:00am – 4:00pm and dining options at a number of bars and cafes on site.
The new Australian Music Vault features a free exhibition celebrating Australian contemporary music. Line up at the box office before 6:00pm every night for the chance to purchase one of 20 $30 tickets to a performance.
