While Australia is best known for its beaches, surfing and wildlife, it also has a rich cultural heritage that includes many festivals. The arts and culture of Australia reflect the diversity of its people, who come from a variety of ethnic, Indigenous and cultural backgrounds. Festivals in Australia draw on traditional culture, particularly those of indigenous peoples. Aboriginal Australians have been performing ceremonial dances for thousands of years but they weren’t documented until the 1800s when white settlers first arrived in Australia from Europe.

Theatre festivals bring people into regional towns during otherwise quiet times and are a major part of Australia’s cultural landscape. They provide opportunities for local workers to gain experience in their chosen field, while also allowing them to showcase their talents on an international stage.

The Sydney Opera House is one of the largest opera houses in the world

The Sydney Opera House is a multi-venue performing arts centre in Sydney, Australia. It is one of the largest performing arts centres in the world, with a capacity of over 6,000 seats across its numerous venues. It was designed by Danish architect Jorn Utzon, who also designed Bagsvognen and Tivoli Gardens amusement parks in Copenhagen, Denmark. The building was constructed from 1973 to 1973 by Danish construction firm Christiani & Nielsen and Australian builders McBride Charles Ryan Ltd (MCR).

The Sydney Opera House has been called “a masterpiece of human genius” by ICOMOS (International Council on Monuments and Sites), while UNESCO has described it as “the most famous landmark [in] Australia”. The building covers 1 hectare (2 1/2 acres) on Sydney Harbour which comprises two theatres: Joan Sutherland Theatre with seating for 1,400 people; Concert Hall with seating for 2,679 people; Studio Theatre seating up to 500 people; Drama Theatre seating up to 240 people; Playhouse Theatre seating up to 160 people; Lyric Theatre seating up to 120 people – all housed beneath an enormous sail-like roof structure that spans 72 metres (236 feet) wide at its widest point but tapers down towards either end where it meets the walls which enclose each venue within this complex structure.”

There are many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander writers in contemporary Australian theatre.

In the past, Australian theatre was dominated by European styles of drama and storytelling. But today there are many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander writers who are making a big impact on the Australian theatre scene.

They write about their own experiences, which is very different from the traditional European style of theatre that was popular in Australia in the past.

In addition to being popular fare with tourists, theatre festivals are also important economically as they bring people into regional towns during otherwise quiet times.

Theatre festivals can be a great source of revenue for small towns or cities. The Sydney Festival is Australia’s largest cultural event and attracts more than 1 million visitors each year. In addition to generating $100 million for NSW businesses during its 10-day run in January 2018, it also injected an estimated $82 million into the economy through ticket sales and other spending by attendees.[1]

Most major Australian cities host festival season each year with performers coming from around the world to participate in them.
