The Wharf Theatres


The Wharf is Sydney Theatre Company's home base located in Walsh Bay. Alongside our administrative and creative areas, we have two theatres in which we present our work — Wharf 1 Theatre and Wharf 2 Theatre. Visitors to The Wharf can also soak in the sweeping views of Sydney Harbour at The Theatre Bar at the End of the Wharf.

Our beloved Wharf has undergone an extensive renovation. With an eye on preserving the unique character and magnificent heritage details, the major upgrade has improved audience facilities and unleashed creative potential in our theatres. 

Opening to the public in February 2021, our first production in The Wharf will be Playing Beatie Bow.

The recent renovations to The Wharf have allowed us to maintain the beloved character of the building and enhance the heritage features, while also providing better accessibility, modernised theatres and a more comfortable theatre experience for you, our audiences. The changes you will see include:

  • Two new public entries, one midway along The Wharf and one at The Theatre Bar at the End of the Wharf, giving you access to the space from the harbourside apron. Both of these entries will have lifts.
  • Improved foyer spaces, rest rooms and paths of travel.
  • Modernisation of Wharf 1 and Wharf 2 Theatres with flexible seating configurations, and upgrades that deliver more comfort and accessibility.
  • Better rehearsal spaces, dressing rooms and many more behind-the-scenes improvements. 


The Wharf has two stunning, newly renovated theatres — Wharf 1 and Wharf 2. 

Wharf 1 Theatre is our main theatre space at The Wharf, seating up to 420 people. 
Wharf 2 Theatre is an intimate theatre space, seating 160 people.
