Brilliant! Clean, helpful staff. In walking distance of South Bank which is awesome. Easy access for the elderly and families with small children. The foyer area does get crowded though and can feel a little claustrophobic

Staff were courteous and knowledgeable. Clean fore courts and the atmosphere inside was great. If you want something to eat before the show we found the quality of food was good and the service quick and the area well maintained and clean.

Performance was a full house and my husband became very hot and sweaty during the performance. It cooled down during intermission.

Amazing. Worth travelling from Sydney to see Swan Lake and the Triple Bill. Only problem is the lack of space between the seats for people with a disability.

It's a great theatre with a fully stocked bar and many cafés and restaurants to visit before you see a show. Easy parking and close to public transport.

Parking is a breeze, the centre has plenty of dining options before performances, toilets are clean and well-maintained, the bars run quickly and efficiently, staff friendly, seats comfortable.

This building reminds me of a cyclone shelter but it serves patrons well except the queue for the bathroom during interval was a mile long and we were lucky to get back in before the show continued. Make sure you get a parking voucher at the time of purchasing your tickets, it may seem expensive but it is worth it... More
