Burrinja is a vibrant community cultural centre that encompasses performing arts, Indigenous gallery, contemporary arts gallery, artist studios, Indigenous garden, live music, workshops and café.
The new theatre at Burrinja offers a variety of performances throughout the year from dance, comedy and drama, to live music, family entertainment and musicals.
There are three art exhibition galleries at Burrinja, and we endeavour to provide a strong mix of both local and national arts and cultural programming, combining exhibitions from the artists of our region like Mary Tonkin with touring programs such as the 60th Blake Prize and the Proppa Now Collective of urban Indigenous artists.
Created in the grounds surrounding Burrinja, the Art of Place Garden is an Indigenous cultural and environmental place for learning, reflection, gathering, creativity and celebration of local Indigenous culture and country.
Burrinja Café provides great food and coffee in a fantastic intimate, plus they feature a variety of music including Ranges Burrinja Folk Club, Blues and Roots, Bluegrass, Open Mic Nights and free live music every Sunday afternoon.
There is always something going on at Burrinja!
