It has a charm all of its own. Majestic, gothic and and regal. Anytime you can catch a show here, do it. Even the kids love the place

State theatre is a stately victorian style theatre. The venue's decor is definitely opulent. The theatre is big enough to attract international stars and intimate enough to thoroughly enjoy Julie Andrews sitting on stage reminiscing.

Its so good to see old buildings with their interior still in good condition. Unfortunately the toilets are of vintage and you do have to wait in line but overall a great building to look into the past.

A truly beautiful building and the theatre auditorium is a true treasure so grateful for the people who saved and maintain it. Thank You all. We got to see Jesus Rodreguez here in November a Life Pleasure.

Gorgeous venue, easy to get to and from. The staff are always nice and there really is no bad seats! Bar selection isn't too bad either

I love the state theatre as it reminds me of the theatres in the uk.it is worth going to see just for the architecture, this is the best theatre in Sydney so go and see for yourselves.

I've been to Sydney a few times but had never noticed this Grand Old Building. How beautiful she is. The architecture is just stunning.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise buildings and after-work drink places, high-end shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle, reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens or picnic lunch at High Park. No matter your interest, be sure to check the full calendar of events hosted by the city, from the Sydney Festival in January to October’s Good Food Month at Hyde Park.
