For those of us watching with undisguised interest the construction goings-on behind the barriers around Melbourne's much-loved Hamer Hall, now is the time to see what all the fuss is about.
Free guided tours of the new Theatres Building and New Hamer Hall are being offered at 11am from Thursday 26th to Sunday 29th of July. There is also a full series of free events, including public talks, free theatrical and musical performances.
If you miss out on the guided tour, on Sunday 29th July there are self-guided 'Be Your Own Rockstar' tours happening at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl.
