Did you know Her Majesty’s Theatre is mainland Australia’s best preserved and oldest continuously operating theatre?
In fact, it was built in 1875 – making it the most intact of only four surviving nineteenth-century public theatres in Australia.
It has become a much-loved venue which has played host to some of the world’s best performers while holding a special place in the heart of generations of local residents and performers.
