What to do at Illawarra Performing Arts Centre
Nestled within the bustling hub of Wollongong’s artistic district lies the Illawarra Performing Arts Centre (IPAC), a beloved and revered hub for the performing arts. With its three dynamic spaces, IPAC embraces an eclectic range of performances, from internationally acclaimed theatre, music, dance, comedy, and children’s programming – as well as a bevy of community events. Serving as the venue manager for IPAC is the vivacious Merrigong Theatre Company, which not only manages the venue but also produces and presents a diverse range of cutting-edge contemporary theatre. Fondly named after an early European exploration of the Illawarra, “Merrigong” is believed to be derived from the Aboriginal word for “beautiful place.”
Located in the vibrant Wollongong Arts Precinct, the Illawarra Performing Arts Centre (IPAC) is the stage where local and national performers come to shine. Boasting an impressive al fresco space, The Social café and bar is a popular pre-show destination, providing the perfect opportunity to catch up with friends over a cold brew or a delicious bite to eat. Come along and experience the magic of live theatre at IPAC – your one-stop shop for entertainment in the Illawarra.
