Sidney Myer Music Bowl Events, Seating Map & Parking

This outdoor performance venue in Melbourne is truly one-of-a-kind; located next to the famous gardens of Kings Domain. Other popular landmarks nearby include the famous Arts Centre, which adjoins the Southbank entertainment precinct of Melbourne.

The Sidney Myer Music Bowl was officially opened in 1959, with the inauguration ceremony having a record audience of over 30,000 people. After so many years, the Sidney Myer Music Bowl is still in perfect condition and the Victorian Heritage Register has included it on its heritage list.

A number of popular music events and performances are held here each year. During its golden jubilee celebration, the Arts Centre had celebrated a four-day event and program offering free events for visitors.

One of the premier events held at the bowl each year is the Carols by Candelight. This is a concert which raises funds for needy charities, with many of the most well-known and loved performers donating their time. Thousands of people attend with their families and sing along to Christmas carols, with the show televised to millions of people all across Australia.

The venue’s unique architecture is worth exploring. The Bowl features a canopy-like structure with a thin membrane and weather-proof plywood that serves best – even during extreme weather conditions.

The entire arena also features a seating capacity of people 10,000. With the main seating area on grass, attendees are encouraged to bring picnic blankets or low lying chairs, so they can relax and enjoy the the.
