Named after Monash University’s founding chancellor, Robert Blackwood Hall is Melbourne’s most prestigious venue outside the CBD. Acoustically, it ranks with the best available in Australia and, as such, has been the venue for numerous commercial recordings for the ABC, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and various film scores.

Being a concert hall, it has no proscenium, stage curtains or fly tower. It is completed by the resplendent Sir Louis Matheson pipe organ as well as two full concert grand pianos including one Steinway.

The climate-controlled auditorium has fixed seating for up to 1598 patrons, and features state-of-the-art audio and lighting systems.

The Robert Blackwood Box Office is open one hour prior to the start of a concert, and closes 30 minutes after the advertised event start time.
