I have travelled to Melbourne from Tasmania a couple of times, purely to attend shows at the Arts Centre, St. Kilda Rd. This world class centre has numerous venues within and is just a short walk past Flinders St. railway station and over the Yarra River. Trams stop outside the venue and other transport (taxis/trains etc) are very close-by. The... More

There are a variety of cafes and bars... More

I think it's my second time visiting inside this Arts Centre in Melbourne. I really enjoyed the show that we've been to less than 2 months ago, it was a comedy 'La Cage Aux Folles'. The place is just amazing, when you happen to be in Melbourne, this place is a must visit. Just by looking at the structure of... More

I was 15 minutes late for the show but my date left my ticket in the box reception which I was able to collect it without too much ados, When I entered the theatre lounge, the... More

Always lovely dining - if you are not a member it is still great dining downstairs. Beautiful Opera - Tosca - one of the best two performances I have ever attended - Dr Chivago being the other. being at The Art centre is an absolute divine experience.

Melbourne is fortunate to have this central city arts complex which includes a concert hall, several live theatres and the art gallery all marked by the spire which is most colourful at night.

We love the theatre and have a family member in the industry. This was the only back stage tour I could find at any of the Melbourne theatres. The tour was great except that there were no shows running during that time (Christmas period). So we didn't see any costumes, props or set which is fine given that this was... More

This is a venue which holds acts of sorts. Art shows, concerts, and other things. A mixed bag of stuff.
