Hamer Hall provides opportunities for artists and audiences to experience live music performed by the finest musicians from around the world. Located at the gateway to Melbourne’s cultural precinct, Hamer Hall has recently undergone a $135.8 million redevelopment which has brought a new level of comfort for audiences in the auditorium and foyers, while both musicians and audiences now benefit from improvements to stage technology and acoustic performance.

Getting to Hamer Hall

Parking is available in the Arts Centre Melbourne/NGV car park or at the Australian Ballet Centre car park, both accessible via Kavanagh Street.

From 12pm Thursday 4 July 2024, vehicle entry and exit for the Arts Centre Melbourne Car Park will be from Kavanagh Street and Southbank Boulevard.

Construction continues throughout the area, so we recommend allowing an additional 30 minutes for arrival and exit. Plan to arrive early for performances, as late entry will not be allowed until a suitable break.

Alternatively, there are various parking facilities available nearby – see the map below.

Please note Sturt Street is now permanently closed to vehicles, bikes and pedestrians. We recommend allowing extra time if you plan to park in the Arts Centre or the Ballet Centre carparks. Visit the Melbourne Arts Precinct website for more information and the latest updates.
