Arts in Maroondah

The arts are high on the agenda for making Maroondah a great place to live and work 

Opportunities for attending and participating in the arts range from leading contemporary visual arts exhibitions, programs and activities at the Maroondah Art Gallery, to accessible art and lifestyle classes and workshops at the Wyreena Community Arts Centre. There's also an exciting range of local and touring theatre and music performances at Karralyka Theatre and Functions Centre.

Arts and Cultural Development StrategyThe arts are an important part of everyday life in Maroondah. From the Maroondah Art Trail in cafes dotted throughout the city, to engaging public art in our parks and facilities, they are central to the quality of life in our City.
