The Melbourne Magic Festival is one of a kind in Australia and is easily regarded as the ultimate winter festival in Melbourne.
Founded in 2008 by the Australian Institute of Magic, the festival seeks to bring together magicians and magic fans to one platform for the experience of a lifetime.

The new 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.
Make sure you arrive at least 30 minutes before showtime so you can head downstairs to Magic Central and explore. There’ll be random acts of magic, jam sessions, instagrammable 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 right at the front door!
Be amazed as Melbourne becomes a magical hub in winter for 13 days only with special events, workshops, and live shows for everyone from child-friendly to adults only. In addition to over 55 magicians from all over Australia, the Festival is usually proud to welcome special guests from around the world.
There are a number of free shows and activities happening at ‘Magic Central’, so be sure to check out the event schedules. Most shows are paid and tickets can be booked in advance online or in person.
