Getting There

Just a hop, skip and a jump north of the bridge from the CBD, Ensemble Theatre is situated in a heritage-listed boatshed on the water in Kirribilli.

The next stop north after Wynyard Station, take the train to Milsons Point station, exit at Ennis Rd and it’s just a 5 minute walk down Willoughby Street.

The most scenic way to travel, treat yourself and jump on a ferry to North Sydney Wharf (a 5 minute walk) or Kirribilli Wharf (a 10–15 minute walk).

There’s free (but time-limited) street parking all around the theatre. Please allow ample time to park before your performance or booking at Bayly’s Bistro.

We offer a bus service for weekday matinee performances. The bus departs from Ennis Rd, outside Milsons Point train station from 10am to 10.45am, then returns to the station after the performance. We also offer an after-lunch service for Bayly’s Bistro diners. Bookings are not required but there is a suggested $3 donation to help cover costs.

Due to physical distancing requirements capacity is currently restricted to 5 passengers and please remember to wear your mask. For the latest info please check ensemble.com.au/visit
