Lighthouse Theatre Warrnambool

Description of Venue: The $9.2 million Lighthouse Theatre redevelopment has injected new life into the heart of Warrnambool's CBD and secured the cultural vitality of the city for decades to come.

This redevelopment is one of the biggest of several transformations the building has undergone since its inception as the Warrnambool Town Hall in 1891.

The original Town Hall was incorporated into the major Performing Arts Centre redevelopment in 1983 and two decades later became the Warrnambool Entertainment Centre.

Its re-emergence as the Lighthouse Theatre in 2012 brings the building into the 21st Century, with improved access, theatre technology, amenities, a versatile boutique performance space for grassroots theatre and a contemporary glass façade which has redefined the face of Warrnambool’s cultural precinct.
