The Theatre Royal is the oldest theatrical institution in Australia and one of its most fascinating landmarks; with the theatre built back in 1827 next to the Royal Hotel.
It was then sold in 1838 before being destroyed by fire in 1840.

The theatre constitutes the Main Stage, backspace, and a sizable studio theatre. The Main Stage, in turn, has three levels that include Stalls, The Dress Circle and the Gallery on the ground, first floor and top levels respectively. The seats are categorised as follows: Premium, A Reserve, B Reserve and C Reserve. Premium seating is the best within the theatre, with A, B and C Reserves varying in viewing ability – where C Reserve offers the best value but with often restricted viewing.
Note that accessible areas at the theatre are restricted to the ground floor, based on the historic nature of the building. Assisted hearing services are also available.
Another great way to experience this treasured building is to take a guided tour. Hour-long guided tours are available on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays from 11am.
