Crowned 'Supreme Venue of the Year' at the 2014 EVANZ Awards, Claudelands is a modern solution for live music, performance, sport, exhibitions and more.

Our unique C-shaped auditorium is the only one of its type in Australasia, bringing you closer to the action and ensuring everyone has the best seat in the house!

With the addition of a four-star conference centre and a combined 10,000 square metres of indoor and outdoor exhibition space, our venue has the perfect area to suit all types of events.

Claudelands has a rich cultural history, and has been hosting events in Hamilton since the late 1800s. The extensive redevelopment of Claudelands began in 2007 and an Open Day was held to mark its re-opening in June 2011. Claudelands' award-winning design is a reflection of the unique cultural and ecological nature of the area.

Claudelands is owned and managed by H3, a unit within Hamilton City Council.
