Opening in 1875 in the heart of Ballarat’ Central Business District, Her Majesty’s Theatre is mainland Australia’s oldest, continuously operating theatre and has played a pivotal role in entertaining, educating and challenging audiences since the rise of the Victorian Goldrush through to present day.
