Theatres

Enter a whole new world even before the show even starts in any of Victoria's historic and unique theatres. Offering the full spectrum of grand, heritage-listed art deco masterpieces alongside hole-in-the-wall theatres and modern performance spaces, seeing a show is only half the experience.

City stories
Theatrical experiences in Melbourne range from boundary-pushing contemporary installations to buildings draped in history. Visual and performing arts collide at fortyfivedownstairs, a combined theatre and gallery dedicated to experimental contemporary works. For a more classic approach, visit the National Theatre, Australia's oldest performing arts academy.

Near and far
Outside the city limits, history and culture combine to present theatre-goers with once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Transport yourself back to the height of 19th century art at Her Majesty's Theatre in nearby Ballarat. The oldest continuously-operated purpose-built theatre in Australia, this 900+ seat venue is amongst the busiest in all of regional Victoria.
