The Cultural Precinct is the University of Western Australia’s cultural hub supporting the music, theatre, exhibition programs and broader arts and cultural events that take place throughout the year.

Conceived as a ‘park with buildings’, UWA is arguably one of the most beautiful campuses in Australia. Sited throughout its heritage-listed gardens are many sculptures, murals and notable buildings, including the Octagon & Dolphin theatres, the Sunken Garden, Somerville Auditorium and the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery. This fusion of culture, nature and learning provides visitors with an experience unique in Western Australia.
