The Wheeler Centre strives to make our events as accessible as possible. We offer tickets for a selection of our events at a low-cost or as a 'pay what you wish' price. The Wheeler Centre may charge for some events to make them possible, and to ensure we can continue to present an ongoing suite of events at a low or no cost.  

We never want cost to be a barrier for anyone to experience events presented by the Wheeler Centre. If you are not in a position to purchase a ticket for a paid event, please contact with details of your request. 

The Wheeler Centre endeavours to uphold ticketing policies that encourage and enable all people to be part of the conversation. In recognition that First Nations communities have historically been marginalised and face ongoing barriers to attendance at arts and culture events, the Wheeler Centre offers First Nations audiences free tickets to selected events. Complimentary tickets for First Nations communities are offered by many arts and cultural organisations across Australia.
