Sidney Myer Music Bowl


Sidney Myer Music Bowl

A Melbourne icon, the Sidney Myer Music Bowl is a public outdoor performance shelter and has hosted some of the biggest events this city has ever seen in it's short history.

Recently renovated, this intricate and complex renovation has ensured that the Sidney Myer Music Bowl remains Australia's premier outdoor performance venue. It now reflects the standard of the rest of the Victorian Art Centre's venues and with its state-of-the-art facilities will play a focal role in presenting the performing arts.

History
The Sidney Myer Music Bowl was named after Russian immigrant Simcha Baevski [later changed his name to Sidney Myer] who arrived in Australia in 1899, aged 20, without a penny to his name.

Despite impoverished beginnings, Myer became one of Australia's most successful businessmen, and a philanthropist. On his death in 1934 a portion of his estate established a fund that would guarantee the Myer family's continuing connection with the community.

When it was built, at a cost of about $500,000, Melbourne's icon of outdoor entertainment won prizes for its unique design - thanks to the vision of architect Barry Patten.

The Sidney Myer Music Bowl is located in the gardens of the King's Domain. If you are driving to the venue the Arts Centre car park is a short walk from the Bowl with entry from the rear off Sturt or Kavanagh Streets. Otherwise it is a short walk from Flinders Street Station or a tram ride up St Kilda Road.
