Her Majesty's Theatre Ballarat

Built in 1875, Her Majesty’s Theatre Ballarat is mainland Australia’s best preserved and oldest continuously operating theatre, and the most intact of only four surviving nineteenth-century public theatres in Australia.

Each year more than 75,000 patrons are entertained by more than 15,000 performers who take to its stage.

The building boasts a beautifully renovated double-balconied auditorium recently re-seated to offer both comfort and elegance, while boasting state of the art theatre equipment.

The Theatre offers an annual season of touring professional theatre productions, representing a selection of performances from some of Australia’s leading theatre companies, tours by popular artists, and is hired by local amateur companies and groups.


Her Maj is just a 5  minute taxi/rideshare or car ride, or 25 minute walk from Prospect Cottage Ballarat for live entertainment.
