Our Story



Karralyka Architecture

The architecturally award-winning building, designed by Harry Seidler (with modifications by other architects)  offers outstanding facilities and services for live theatre, corporate events, social functions, wedding receptions, conventions and exhibitions.

Harry Seidler, AC OBE (1923 – 2006) was an Austrian-born Australian architect who is considered to be one of the leading exponents of Modernism's methodology in Australia and the first architect to fully express the principles of the Bauhaus in Australia.  Bauhaus exhibited radically simplified forms, with rationality and functionality, and the idea that mass-production was reconcilable with the individual artistic spirit. Seidler designed more than 180 buildings and he received much recognition for his contribution to the architecture of Australia. He used flowing shapes and hard edges, and forced his sites onto their natural surrounds.

Karralyka Sculpture

Charles O. Perry (1929-2011) was the creator of the sculpture Cassini, an artist of many dimensions who ponders the wonderful mysteries of the universe. His large scale and monumental sculptures celebrate and question the laws of nature. His intuitive investigation of nature's variables provides the springboard for many of Perry's concepts. Believing that sculpture must stand on its own merit without need of explanation, Perry's work has an elegance of form that masks the mathematical complexity of its genesis. Cassini stands as the iconic entrance to Karralyka to this day.
