2006 - 2011
In May 2011 a new 400 seat purpose-built performing arts venue opened at Burrinja. This facility will enable the region’s community, schools, theatre companies and music groups to access a quality performing arts venue without having to travel long distances ‘off the mountain’. It will be a venue the Dandenong Ranges can rightly call their own. This significant regional cultural project will expand and enhance the existing Burrinja arts and cultural centre with a performing arts venue and ancillary facilities consistent with best theatre practices and including improved gallery, arts studio, foyer and user amenities. It will integrate the building into the natural environment that surrounds Burrinja with the new indigenous cultural gardens.
