Melbourne Online: Your Gateway To Melbourne

The Arts Centre

The Arts Centre, at the start of the St Kilda Road Boulevard, is Melbourne's main arts, music and theatre complex. There are two main buildings on the left as you leave Flinders Street Station and walk across Swanston Street Bridge. The buidings are situated alongside the Yarra River and Southbank.

You can't miss the complex as one of the buildings has a spire that towers 162 metres and which is lit up at night. Located in the building beneath the tower are three theatres: State Theatre, Playbox Theatre and the George Fairfax Studio. In the second building is the Hamer Hall (previously Melbourne Concert Hall). There are cafes at both venues. On Sundays, you can take a "Backstage Tour" at the Arts Centre.

Across the road and down in the gardens of the King's Domain is Melbourne's famous outdoor concert venue, the Sidney Myer Music Bowl.

A full listing of plays and concerts at the ceentre can be found on the Arts Centre website.
