The Entertainment Quarter

Fox Studios Australia

The Entertainment Quarter is an entertainment precinct in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney, Australia. The Entertainment Quarter sits beside Fox Studios Australia in the suburb of Moore Park, located 3 kilometres south-east of the Sydney central business district and is part of local government area of the City of Sydney.


The precinct features many specialty shops, bars, cafes, restaurants, two cinemas (both owned by Hoyts), live entertainment venues including a comedy store and function centre, children's playground, parklands and entertainment sporting facilities such as ten pin bowling and an ice rink during winter.

The Showring hosts a Farmer's Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays and a Merchandise Market on Saturdays and Sundays. Retailers include music retailer Sanity, and fashion stores Esprit and Bay Swiss.


The Entertainment Quarter and Fox Studios Australia, were originally the site of Royal Agricultural Society of New South Wales Sydney Showground which hosted the annual Sydney Royal Easter Show. The Sydney Showground moved to Homebush Bay in preparation for the 2000 Summer Olympics. Some of the venues built for the Olympic Games are now used for the annual show.

Fox Studios Australia and the entertainment precinct opened at Moore Park in 1998. A theme park at this location was closed and some of the facilities have found new uses in 'The Entertainment Quarter'.
