Munro Martin Parklands

Since the redevelopment and re-opening in August 2016, Munro Martin Parklands has quickly become a locals favourite to experience ballet, contemporary music, new circus and Christmas pantomimes. The green proscenium stage is the largest of its kind in Australia and creates a perfect place to experience the arts under a tropical sky.

The Parklands also boast tropical plantings, vine covered pergolas and arbours and an open-air plaza to encourage passive, casual use of the facility.

As Munro Martin Parklands is an outdoor venue shows will proceed rain or shine. Read our full weather advice.
