The Melbourne Magic Festival is now officially recognised as the largest festival of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere and attracts magicians and magic fans from all over the country and beyond!
Have you ever seen someone levitate right in front of your eyes? Would you like to be hypnotised or have your thoughts read? Are you looking for a family-friendly show that will appeal to all ages or maybe an astonishing demonstration of pure sleight of hand? How about learning a trick or two yourself?
Be amazed as Melbourne becomes a magical hub in winter for 14 days only, with special events, workshops, and live shows for everyone from child-friendly to adults-only.
Bring the family for a big day out of magic shows and workshops, grab lunch in the city, or meet your friends for drinks in the Magic Central Bar, followed by a night of hilarious and mind-blowing magic!
The Hub of the Melbourne Magic Festival is Arrow on Swanston. This is the perfect home away from home for travellers with a variety of affordable accommodation on site, but the perfect home for the Melbourne Magic Festival with four new theatres and a great new Magic Central.
Ensure you arrive at least 30 minutes before showtime to head downstairs to Magic Central and explore. There’ll be random acts of magic, jam sessions, Instagram-able locations and the Magic Universe Shop. Then the hosts will gather you together and take you directly to your theatre ten minutes before showtime.
Plus, it’s centrally located in Melbourne’s CBD, with a tram stop at the front door!
