About the Arrow Hub

The new Hub of the Melbourne Magic Festival is Arrow on Swanston. The perfect home away from home for travellers with a variety of affordable accommodation on site, but the perfect home for the Melbourne Magic Festival with four new theatres and a great new Magic Central.


Make sure you arrive at least 30 minutes before showtime so you can head downstairs to Magic Central and explore. We’ll have random acts of magic, jam sessions, instagrammable locations and the Magic Universe Shop. In the evening you can grab a cocktail courtesy of Melbourne Mobile Bars. Then our hosts will gather you together and take you directly to you theatre ten minutes before showtime.

Plus, it’s centrally located in Melbourne’s CBD with a tram stop right at the front door!

Arrow on Swanston is located at 488 Swanston St and will play host to shows in The Houdini Theatre (260 seats), The Cardini Cabaret (80 seats), The Slydini Showroom (40 seats) and The Close Up Gallery (40 seats).


Onsite parking is available accessed through Cardigan Terrace.
