Sydney Theatre Company, The Wharf Theatres

back Back to Feasts
The Wharf is Sydney Theatre Company's home base and an icon of Australian arts history, located in the Walsh Bay Arts Precinct. 

Housed in a heritage-listed marvel – an extensively renovated cargo wharf with sweeping views of Sydney Harbour – The Wharf boasts two fully-flexible theatre spaces, Sydney Theatre Company’s administrative offices, a stunningly appointed restaurant, and purpose-built set and costume workshops that allow for Sydney Theatre Company’s productions to come to life all under one roof. 

Visitors to The Wharf can expect exciting theatre experiences, sparkling water views, and a thrilling creative atmosphere that is unique to one of the world's most beautiful and inspiring arts venues.

This venue is on The Thirsty Mile for Sydney Festival 2024.
