Getting Here

How to find Malthouse Theatre

113 Sturt Street, Southbank 3006, VIC AUSTRALIA.


The No. 1 South Melbourne tram goes right past our door. Get off at Stop 18. Any tram down St Kilda Road—jump off at Grant Street, Stop 17 and take a 3-minute walk.


Any train to Flinders Street, then a 12-minute stroll through Melbourne’s sparkling Arts Precinct.


Secure your bike to one of the many racks outside the foyer. There’s a Melbourne Bike Share station outside the theatre. Hire a helmet from the IGA, just along Sturt Street.


The Care Park public car park at 264 Sturt Street is just a 3-minute walk from The Coopers Malthouse. Malthouse Subscribers get a 15% discount on the Premium Parking Service at Arts Centre Melbourne’s Car Park. From there, it’s a 5-minute walk along either Sturt Street or Dodds Street. You’ll need to pre-book and pre-pay though, so get organised. Limited street parking is available in surrounding streets.

Getting here is easy. The real adventure begins inside.

Audience Accessibility

We offer a range of services to make our theatre accessible to all.

Wheelchair Access

Wheelchair bookings can be made for performances in any of the venues within The Coopers Malthouse. We are happy for patrons to either transfer from their wheelchair to a seat, or to clear a space so that the patron may stay in their chair. We are also happy to reserve a space next to this position for any companions or friends attending the performance.

As we need to pass the required information on to our Front of House team it is best that bookings be made as far in advance as possible. To make a booking please contact the Box Office.

Companion Card

The Companion Card has been developed by the Victorian Network on Recreation and Disability (VICNORD) and admits carers to shows as complimentary guests. Holders of this card are welcome to attend any performance presented by Malthouse Theatre.

Hearing Assistance

Malthouse Theatre offers a Hearing Assistance System in all three venues which allows patrons who are using a hearing aid to tune into the frequency of that venue. For patrons without a hearing aid, we also offer a similar system and provide the patron with headphones. These systems are available for all performances held at The Coopers Malthouse.

It is preferable that you let our team know that you intend to use the system either whilst making your booking or by contacting the Box Office directly to inform us.

Auslan Interpreted and Audio Described Performances 

Malthouse Theatre offers AUSLAN interpretation and Audio Description for a select number of performances. Concession price tickets are available for those accessing these services.

Please email to book tickets to use the Auslan interpretation service.
