Arts Centre Melbourne’s Interior Design and Public Art Tour


Arts Centre Melbourne sits on a site that has been a gathering place for song, storytelling, community and culture for First Nations people for millennia. We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land on which we stand, the Wurundjeri Woi-Wurrung people, and pay our respects to their Elders, past and present.
Sitting beneath our iconic Spire, the Arts Centre stages more than 4,000 performances and public events and welcomes over 3 million people through its doors every year.
As a cultural and architectural landmark in our nation’s cultural capital, Arts Centre Melbourne has showcased the best of Australian and international performing arts for over 30 years.
Proudly the home of flagship resident companies — The Australian
Ballet, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Melbourne Theatre Company and Opera Australia and a range of other presenters who collectively bring the stages and spaces to life.
With its own program of performances, events and activities, Arts Centre Melbourne offers diverse audiences a distinctly multi-dimensional approach to participation, education and entertainment.
