Arts Centre Melbourne

Arts Centre in Southbank & Docklands

The Arts Centre is made up of two separate buildings, Hamer Hall and the Theatres Building (under the spire, including a free gallery space with changing exhibitions), linked by a series of landscaped walkways. Tours of the theatres and exhibitions leave daily at 11am (adult/child $20/15); the Sunday tour includes the backstage areas.

The Arts Centre hosts a craft market every Sunday from 10am to 4pm. Around 80 artisans sell everything from juggling balls to photographs. Across the way in Kings Domain is the Sidney Myer Music Bowl, a summer venue with a stage that's hosted everything from soprano Dame Kiri Te Kanawa to summer dance parties.
