Overview
More
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. The new Australian Music Vault features a free exhibition celebrating Australian contemporary music. On Sundays (10am - 4pm), local artisans showcase their unique handmade goods at the Sunday Market. Book tickets at the box office to see a performance or join a guided tour. A range of cafe, dining and bar options are on site and a 24-hour car park available.

Hi I'm fairly short so always sit in the dress circle as the floor is not sloped enough for me. It's a beautiful theatre & most seats are great. Enjoy.
