COVID-19 Special Terms

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 guidelines below to keep everyone safe. The Centre’s policies and procedures are regularly reviewed and updated in accordance with government advice.

We greatly appreciate your support, and your patience and respect towards staff, guests and other audience members when visiting the Wheeler Centre. Thank you in advance for doing your part to keep our community safe.

For further information about current government guidelines, please visit the Victorian Government’s Coronavirus website.

Feeling Unwell?

While government guidelines no longer mandate for isolation if you test positive for COVID_19, please help us keep our staff and community safe and stay home if you have any COVID-19 symptoms, including a sore throat, dry cough or a fever.
If you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, we ask that you do not attend the Wheeler Centre until you have received a negative test result.
If you are no longer attending a Wheeler Centre event for any of COVID-related reasons, we will happily refund the price of your ticket. Please contact our ticketing team during office hours on or (03) 9094 7800 to arrange a full refund.

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.

Physical Distance

Help us practice physical distancing whenever possible. When able to do so, please maintain a 1.5m distance from others.

Wheeler Centre ushers are available at all events to safely assist with any questions or 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.
