Buzzing with dynamic and cutting-edge arts and culture, Melbourne has it all: world-class theatre, music and opera, diverse galleries and museums, architectural marvels, public and street art, live music, comedy and year-round events.
See a show in one of Melbourne’s historic theatres or a blockbuster stadium concert. Stroll down to Melbourne’s Southbank arts precinct where The Arts Centre, MTC, Malthouse, Recital Centre and the National Gallery of Victoria form Melbourne’s beating cultural heart.
Wander the city’s labyrinth of laneways pulsating with coffee, conversation and street art – or take a guided tour and uncover its hidden secrets. Take in the charm of the State Library or chill out at Federation Square. Around every corner, there’s something new to discover.
Inspiring experimentation, innovation, creativity and passion, Melbourne’s love of the arts is imprinted all over the city. Melbourne’s love of all things cultural extends well beyond its centre. You’ll find creative corners, community collectives and quirky venues all presenting high quality and challenging programming right across inner and outer metro Melbourne.
