Since opening in 1977, Arts Centre Melbourne has established itself as Melbourne's home of the performing arts.

The beautiful Arts Centre complex is the feature point of the Southbank arts and culture precinct, easily identified by its iconic spire which lights up the city at night.

The Centre is open daily, hosting a diverse range of quality local and international performances throughout the year, as well as offering visitors other activities including guided tours, exhibitions, a weekly Sunday arts and craft market and a restaurant and cafe.
