The Eugene Goossens Hall is located within the Australian Broadcasting Corporation Centre. The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) is a government establishment which provides a national network of television and radio broadcasts, along with a range of other initiatives.
Unlike other commercial broadcasts, the ABC is dedicated to Australian culture, high-quality news, interviews and music. The Eugene Goossens Hall is an entertainment and recording space that is unique in style and function. Many live recordings for radio stations, including ABC and Triple J, have been recorded in this location. As it is a small space, the audience is often seated casually, and the informality of the event makes the recording even more spontaneous and special. The versatile contemporary recording room is suitable for solo musicians and full-sized bands.
The venue is also used for CD recordings, public concerts and conferences, and can be hired by other community and commercial organisations. The room is kitted out with the latest sound recording technology and features a lighting grid, a green room and rehearsal spaces. The Eugene Goossens Hall is accessed through the main entrance of the ABC building.
You will usually need to register with security and reception before you enter, and receive direct instructions on how to visit the recording space. If you are arriving to join in a concert yourself, you will love the contemporary feel and intimacy of this location. Address: 700 Harris Street, Ultimo, NSW, 2007.
