The Pavilion Performing Arts Centre is the new home of performing arts in the Sutherland Shire, rebuilt within the ‘bones’ of the Sutherland Entertainment Centre.

Sutherland Shire is renowned for its high-calibre local performing arts companies and enthusiastic audiences. The Pavilion is a home for their work as well as an exciting selection of Australian and international entertainment.

The exceptional design of architects CHROFI and NBRS Architecture worked within the structure of the iconic 40-year-old entertainment centre, re-imagining its internal spaces to create a welcoming timber and glass foyer that connects with Peace Park in Eton Street. With abundant natural light and park-views, the enhanced audience experience helps in setting a new benchmark for metropolitan performing arts facilities in Sydney’s south.
