Attended a few functions here over the years. The facility also hosts exhibitions - the current Kylie Exhibition is most interesting, but even greater if you're a fan. The State Theatre is well appointed and the views are just great from most seats - some restrictions from site seats, but in the middle - they're first class. Hamer Hall is... More

We went to the Arts Centre to see a performance of "Dusty". It was excellent.We also saw the "Kylie" Costume Exhibit. Also very good. The centre it self is lovely. The are a few floors all beautifully carpeted with people around to direct you, lots of seating and two restaurants. Mrs. Jeanne Pratt is often there to chat to visitors.... More

I did not get a chance to see a show, but did visit for a good look around and thought it was a great building for the Art Centre and the Tower (like the Eiffel tower in Paris) makes a wonderful sight in the city scape. Really good design layout inside and beautifully decorated. Location is perfect as close to... More

I have always liked Melbourne as it is a city that holds its arts in high regards. My first festival experience was through English class while at school in Adelaide, which was later fueled and nurtured in Melbourne through its numerous arts festivals. In Melbourne’s Arts Precinct, you’ll be guided by the towering spire of the Arts Centre Melbourne, the premier... More

I have not been to the Arts Centre for ages but took the opportunity to call in recently especially to see the Kylie exhibition and was reminded again what an amazing facility this is. With car parking on site, great catering, amazing facilities and public transport right to the door, the Arts Centre has to be the best in Australia.... More

We visited the Melbourne Arts Centre quite by chance as we needed to find out bearings in Melbourne having been dropped off there by the cruise ship bus. What a find! There was an incredible show of Kylie's costumes through her career and later we had lunch in the cafe which was excellent. We wished we had been in Melbourne... More

A fantastic show - fabulous, fabulous, fabulous. I'm old enough to say I saw the Original Godspell in 1971 - four times!!!! Loved it then, and have loved it ever since. And this show was just as good - energetic, fast paced, great singing, funny, topical (Donald Trump even!), contemporary. And Colleen Hewitt an added bonus! Thank you to all... More

What a treat to have the opportunity to see this wonderful collection of jewels, from Elizabeth Taylor to Claudia Cardinale, to Gina Loll. etc. It was very well displayed and not at all rushed on the Thursday afternoon
