How to find Malthouse Theatre

**FROM 16 JULY**

Southbank Boulevard will be closed to all traffic between St Kilda Road and Sturt Street. Trams will continue to operate and the precinct will remain open to pedestrians. We recommend adding extra travel time to your journey and taking public transportation. For more information see the City of Melbourne’s plans and roadwork maps here.


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.


Limited on-street parking is available on Grant Street, Sturt Street and Dodds Streets. Two disabled parking spaces are just outside The Coopers Malthouse entrance on Sturt Street.
