The Hedberg

The Hedberg is a new 8000m2 Academy building for the University of Tasmania and the Tasmanian State Government, that brings together Australia’s oldest functioning theatre, the Theatre Royal with a new performing arts centre and the University of Tasmania Conservatorium of Music. Located in the historic, mixed-use, port-side Wapping district of Hobart, Tasmania Australia, the Academy is within walking distance to the city’s water front and historical city center. In addition to the existing 750 seat Theatre Royal, the new development houses 3 new major public performance spaces, a 350 seat recital hall, a 285 seat studio theatre, and a 150 seat salon along with a full array of recording, rehearsal, and practice facilities.
