The Myer Music bowl is Melbourne's best semi outdoor venue. It is slightly hidden behind the grassy banks of the park beside St Kilda Rd. Once within the grounds there is a huge grassy bank sloping down to the amphitheatre at the bottom. There is proper seating once you are undercover. Many people bring picnics but be aware there are... More

Love the fact that we can enjoy excellent music and even ballet for free. Fun to sit on the grass (take a cushion) and have a picnic with friends before the show.

I just attended a concert at Sidney Myer Music Bowl today and I found this place a superb choice for concerts. A great view of city and just next to Royal Botanic Gardens , it's a place to relax and enjoy the music. Overall, it's a unique avenue which definitely worth a visit.

I watched Arcade Fire perform on Wednesday night. Incredible. I'm from the UK and we simply don't have a space quite like this. Watching with the city on my left, and the lights from melbourne park on my right, really added to the ambience. A terrific venue. I am very jealous Melburnians!

In my opinion the best place to see music performed. Now cancelled Summadayze festival was played here, my favourite way to ring in the New Year. I've seen Swedish House Mafia and Kanye West play here as well, and the bowl set-up to the arena provides perfect viewing for pretty much the entire audience (provided you haven't picked the spot...

The Music Bowl is a wonderful piece of Melbourne, set in our Botanical Gardens just south of the Yarra River and only a short walk from the city of Melbourne. I have a lot of memories of concerts here from Rod Stewart, ELO, Bob Dylan, Chicago, Wings, etc. It has great acoustics and a good atmosphere, the only thing that... More

This is a wonderful outdoor venue for concerts and special festivities. It is located in the loveliest gardens of Melbourne and enjoying a picnic meal and a nice glass of wine while listening to the MSO, or attending Carols by Candlelight is always a memorable experience (although depending on the weather of course!)
