As you take your seat (one of 2,500!) in Hamer Hall, Australia's premier, multi-level concert venue, get ready for a performance from some of the biggest national and international artists across jazz, rock, pop, multicultural, chamber, classical, cabaret and contemporary music.
Entering Hamer Hall, you may suddenly feel transported to some grand cave, deep below Melbourne’s streets. This is because Hamer Hall’s walls are actually painted in colours and patterns that reflect Australia’s gemstone deposits, giving the impression the building was carved out of a hillside.
The venue opened as the “Melbourne Concert Hall” on 6 November 1982 and quickly became the premier venue for orchestral performance in Melbourne. It was renamed in 2004 in honour of former Victorian Premier Sir Rupert Hamer AC, KCMG ED, who served from 1972–81 and championed the building of what has become Arts Centre Melbourne.
