sculpture, running through the city and unfolding over the course of a day. Along paths and promenades, through buildings and across plazas, the domino line works its way through the urban fabric of Melbourne, creating an unforgettable celebration for all who live, work or visit our city.
Conceived and directed by UK-based Station House Opera, Dominoes was first created as a celebration to link the five “host boroughs” for the London Olympics Arts Festival and the project has since been presented in over ten European cities.

- All viewing hubs are accessible via wheelchair. Campbell Arcade and Flinders Street Subway are only accessible via stairs.
- Please note road closure times when planning your journey into the city.
- Consider catching public transport.
- Access to the Flinders Street Subway beyond Campbell Arcade requires a Myki. If you touch on your Myki to enter the subway area and touch off within 15 minutes you won’t attract a Myki charge. See PTV website for details on Myki charges.
