We were here for Wakikirri 2017. Huge venue but accessible and easy to get around. Comfortable seating and friendly staff. Plenty of eating places nearby but some close at 8pm.

Attended the theatre last night to see this great production. The State Theatre is easy to get to with reasonably priced parking and a variety of eateries and bars for pre dinner. The State Theatre is very comfortable with great visibility. Really enjoyable night.

I visited the art centre for the first time when going to see Hello Dolly. The arts centre is very impressive, well signed and parking was easy. I look forward to seeing other productions there.
