The Ensemble Theatre is an Australian theatre company, situated in Kirribilli, New South Wales. It is Australia's longest continuously running professional theatre group,[1] having given its first performance in Cammeray Children's Library on 11 May 1958. It relocated to the current premises in the old boatshed on the shore of Careening Cove in 1960.[2]

The complex also incorporates Bayly's Restaurant, named in honour of the actress Lorraine Bayly, in recognition of her long-running commitment to the Ensemble Theatre, to mark her retirement from the stage in June 2003.[3]
