The State Theatre Centre is just a stone's throw away from Perth Railway Station and Roe St Bus Station, making public transport an option for travelling to and from the theatre.

Perth Train Station can be accessed from the Eastern Concourse, Wellington Street, and the Roe Street entrance to Platform 9. People with accessibility difficulties are encouraged to use the Eastern Concourse that connects the Perth Cultural Centre with Forrest Chase, which is the current option as the William Street footbridge is not DDA compliant.
