We saw Noel Fielding at the Hammer Hall and hadn't seen it since it was refurbished. Inside the space was quite grand with interesting lighting and timber surfaces. The seats were comfortable and a good size. The foyer was quite modern if a little overdone with the gold features on the ceiling. There is great access with entrances on multiple... More

Gamer Hall, the Playhouse and the State Theatre are all great venues. The MSO at Hamer Hall was fantastic and plus and musicals have been great at the other spaces. Proximity to the national Gallery of Victoria, the Restaurants of Southbank and the Gardens along the Yarra make the precinct attractive for a full day of activity.

Here to buy tickets, but also just to enjoy the building and it's peaceful (by day) spaces. There is a photo exhibition at the moment, and the art collection on hall walls is amazing. The design and upkeep a great joy.

I love this theatre complex. I have sat through all of Wagner's "Ring", many operas and a lot of theatre and enjoyed the total experience and ambience. And I have enjoyed its bars and sometimes it's restaurants and other eateries. All this dates back to 1988 on our first visit to Oz and before we moved to live here. Today... More

I wish my granddaughter had been with us to play in the wonderfully creative children's areas. I love this Centre, partly because it actually got me doing a charcoal sketch of a life (mannequin) model. It was great to feel like an artist again. I sat on the brass swing and loved the books featured in the bookstore too. There... More

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
