Arts Centre Melbourne is at the centre of the Melbourne Arts Precinct. The precinct includes the National Gallery of Victoria, Hamer Hall (formerly the Concert Hall), and the State Theatre. The buildings were constructed consecutively from 1968 (NGV) through until 1984 (Theatres Building). The precinct was designed by Sir Roy Grounds employing geometric conventions. The site formerly hosted Wirth‘s Circus and it‘s accompanied park and fairgrounds.
