Art, theatre & culture
Scratch the surface in Melbourne and you'll discover a city buzzing with dynamic and cutting-edge arts and culture. Head to the Southbank precinct – where the The Arts Centre, MTC, Malthouse, Recital Centre and the National Gallery of Victoria form Melbourne's beating cultural heart. At Federation Square, where art meets architecture, watch inspiring audio visual shows at ACMI, see the collection at the Ian Potter Centre, or catch a recital at The Edge theatre. Inside and out, you'll discover the innovation and skill of local artists and designers at hole-in-the-wall galleries and theatres across the city.
