Casula Powerhouse is a multi-arts facility tucked away in Casula that overlooks the banks of George’s River (sometimes referred to as the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre).
What was once a power station in the 1950s, has been creatively designed to create a vibrant art space.

In addition to the facilities mentioned above, the centre is also home to a 300+ seat theatre that is inclusive of full seasons with some of the country’s most popular production companies. This holistic approach to art emphasises the centre’s virtues to provide artwork that speaks to the community at large. There are also a couple of artist residences on location.
Depending on the time of your visit, look out for the different exhibitions, events and educational programs that cover various forms of art and subjects. There are also outreach projects whose intention is to spread the centre’s impact. You may also be interested in catching up with a host of local performance groups for an exciting show.
One fascinating thing about the Casula Powerhouse is its expansive green open spaces that add a natural element to all the forms of art onsite. The Weaving Garden is a favourite spot, and for a good reason, as nature’s beauty here allows for a sense serenity and tranquillity. Aside from that, there are also 20 hectares of parklands for the art lover and nature enthusiast.
Casula Powerhouse is easily accessible by public transport using a train to Casula Station on the T2 Inner West and South Line. For those driving, there is free onsite parking. The arts facility remains open from 10am to 5pm daily and is closed on public holidays.
