Arts and Culture in Walsh Bay

See Australia’s finest actors and dancers in breathtaking performances in Walsh Bay, a wonderful entertainment precinct with heritage-listed finger wharves on splendid Sydney Harbour. You can even see shows and enjoy cocktails on a beautifully restored wharf near the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Bangarra Dance Theatre, Walsh Bay


Australia’s premier theatre group leads this acclaimed performing arts scene. The Sydney Theatre Company’s annual program attracts a worldwide audience. Stars of stage and film to have graced the company’s boards include Cate Blanchett, Toni Collette, Rebel Wilson and Hugo Weaving.

This delightful bay area includes the Roslyn Packer Theatre, which hosts outstanding Australian and international theatre and dance. Check out the exciting Walsh Bay events calendar for world-class performances as well as festivals and art exhibitions that are staged throughout the year.

The Australian Theatre for Young People, which trained Rose Byrne, puts on a stellar annual program. Explore the theatres and wharves on free self-guided tours and see outdoor sculptures, including Jimmie Durham's Still Life With Stone and Car and Brett Whiteley's Black Totem II.


The Sydney Dance Company and Bangarra Dance Theatre, an internationally renowned indigenous dance company that brings Dreamtime stories to life, both had headquarters at Walsh Bay and will return once the redevelopment of the wharves is complete. In the meantime, you can still see their performances at nearby Roslyn Packer Theatre.
