The Arts Centre is diverse and well positioned to the city centre. The array of entertainment is breathtaking and standards of performance are amongst the highest in the world. A galaxy of stars strut the stage every night. The theatres are comfortable and easily accessible and cater for the patron very well.

The whole complex is beautiful and the decor is warm and inviting. I highly recommend going to see a show at any of the theaters in this compact complex (all excellent theaters and of different sizes), located on the Yarra River at Southbank, a stone's throw from the City centre (and Flinders Street Station). I always look forward to returning.... More

Some are by visiting companies, such as Bell Shakespeare and the Australian Opera, while others, such as Show Boat, are by the Production Company, brainchild of billionaire Melbourne businesswoman Jeanne Pratt.. The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra is a regular use of the space. The Melbourne Theatre... More
