Bunjil Place is the first facility of its kind, bringing together creativity, entertainment and community in a way that is unparalleled in Australia.
Bunjil Place was officially opened on 28 October 2017, with more than 35,000 visitors streaming through the doors over the opening weekend. As the City of Casey’s treasured entertainment precinct, it brings together an unprecedented mix of facilities including an outdoor community plaza, theatre, multipurpose studio, function centre, library, gallery and City of Casey Customer Service Centre all in one place.
The name and striking architectural design of the facility were inspired by stories of Bunjil (also known as ‘Bundjil’) the ‘creator’, from our First Nation’s People. The iconic roof structure is designed to resemble the soaring eagles’ wings with the world-renowned timber gridshell in the foyer acting as the legs.
With so many spaces and a variety of exciting and diverse entertainment options to enjoy, Bunjil Place has already collected multiple awards and quickly become the destination for arts and entertainment in Melbourne’s south east.
