As we return to hosting live events at the Wheeler Centre, the safety and wellbeing of our staff, guests and audiences is our priority. Please familiarise yourself with the measures we have in place to keep everyone safe. The Centre’s policies and procedures are regularly reviewed and updated in accordance with government advice. We appreciate your support, and ask that you please be patient and respect staff, guests and other audience members when visiting the Wheeler Centre. Thank you in advance for doing your part to keep our community safe.

Entry Requirements

As of 11.59pm on Friday 22 April 2022, Victorian Government public health orders no longer require visitors to check in using the Services Victoria app when entering venues.

Face Masks

Under the updated Victorian government guidelines in effect from Friday 25 February 2022, masks are no longer required at many indoor settings. However the Wheeler Centre recommends audience members wear masks where social distancing is not possible.

Staff at the Wheeler Centre will continue to wear masks when working with audience members.


Feeling Unwell?

Please stay home if you have any COVID-19 symptoms, including a sore throat, dry cough or a fever.  If you have been instructed to isolate, please help us keep our staff and community safe and do not attend the  Wheeler Centre.

If you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, we recommend you do not attend until you have received a negative test result and followed all current health advice to ensure the safety and wellbeing of others.

If you are no longer attending a Wheeler Centre event for any of the above reasons, we will happily refund the price of your ticket. Please contact reception during office hours on or (03) 9094 7800 to arrange a full refund.

Physical Distance

Help us practice physical distancing whenever possible.

When able to do so, please maintain a 1.5m distance from others.  When you arrive at the Wheeler Centre, you may be required to queue 1.5m apart down the access ramp and along Little Lonsdale Street.

Capacity limits for the foyer and performance space are currently in place. Wheeler Centre ushers will be there to safely assist with any questions or any access needs. Please respect the instructions of staff. Failure to comply with staff instructions may result in you being asked to leave the premises.

Where possible, please arrive with your full group in order to be seated together.


We have hand sanitiser readily available at Wheeler Centre events and have more frequent and enhanced cleaning of bathrooms and surfaces during and after events.
