An easy tram ride along St Kilda Road takes you to Melbourne's arts precinct and premier attraction the Arts Centre. There are 2 main buildings above ground with a covered walkway between, and 2 levels below ground. One building houses the largest theatre used for ballet, opera and big shows. This has an amazing spire, like a mini Eiffel tower,... More

The staff in reception were helpful, friendly and informative. The Brass band was amazing, funny and well presented. I was impressed by the retro decor. The acoustics within the auditorium was amazing. If you have a spare evening when in Melbourne, go to the arts center and ensure you watch a show. Note Wheelchair access is available Refreshments can be... More

We were here to see the Andy Warhol/Ai Wei Wei exhibition which was fascinating. Quite a few "so?" moments, but much to engage the imagination. Cafe not brilliant with little choice but there is a restaurant (which we did not try)

Polyglot provided a fabulous children's activity in the forecourt. Tangle by name, tangle by activity. Children, aged to ten, were given a ball of coloured 'elastic' as the entered the space, and then walked, crawled, slithered and tangled themselves as they would their elastic around, under, above anything and anyone. Polyglot actors were in with the children, interesting and making... More

We loved wandering around the market. It was a hot Sunday and we appreciated the shady awnings. Enjoyed seeing the craft but loved buying lunch from the various stalls and sitting on the lush grass listening to the band. Stand out were the Dutch pancakes and raspberry sorbet. Bread from Woodfrog Bakery's stall a treat to take home.

We live in a regional centre and travelled 4 hours into Melbourne to visit Catherine the Great Art Exhibition as something to do with my sister for her birthday. It was a fantastic day, the exhibition was well presented and easy to get around. Fantastic that we have the opportunity in Australia to see such great art works

I went to see Madama Butterfly here; since they have restored and renovated the interiors, the sound quality has gone through the roof. The building is unashamedly retro; the interiors were made a bit more modern with the renovation, however the theatre itself was painstakingly restored with the 'rock effect' style of painting. The ushers and venue staff are helpful,... More

I took my two grandchildren to see the three little pigs. The venue was great. Easy access across princess bridge from flinders street station. Or a tram stops directly out the front. Once arriving at the venue the staff were amazing. They greeted us at the door, showed us where the lifts were located, showed us where to park the... More

If you only see one exhibition this year make sure it is the Ai Wei Wei and Andy Warhol at the NGV. It has been skilfully curated and provides a wonderful insight into 2 very influential artists. Don't miss the photo booth in the children's rooms after viewing part 2 of the exhibition. Lots of fun for adults too.

Parking was a breeze, and $19.00 for three hours. We were there to see The Illusionists 1903. The show was entertaining and magical! A must see!. The theatre has tiered seating so one gets an uninterrupted view of the stage. All of the public spaces in the centre are, easily accessible. Food is a little on the expensive side, but... More
