Fit for a queen
Be captivated by the superbly restored heritage buildings in Ballarat and Bendigo. Catch a show at Her Majesty's Theatre in Ballarat, which has been entertaining audiences for more than 125 years, or see a theatre performance in Bendigo's immaculately restored Capital Theatre. Built in 1873, the Capital Theatre was the largest hall in Victoria, other than the Melbourne Town Hall.

Cat Power to spider dances
Castlemaine's Theatre Royal is also well worth a visit. The oldest continuously operating theatre in Victoria, this much-loved venue has hosted international talent including, Cat Power and Gillian Welch, and it was here than Lola Montez performed her daring spider dance to a boisterous crowd of miners.

Old greets new

The brand new the 900-plus seat venue already has an impressive line-up of local and international performers on its program. Keep an eye out for the grand opening. 

Silver screen
