Fans of Australian music legends The Seekers will gather in Melbourne for vocalist Judith Durham’s state memorial service.

Ms Durham died in August, aged 79, following complications arising from a long-standing lung disease.

The free service will be held at Hamer Hall in the Victorian Arts Centre starting at 7pm on Tuesday, with doors to open an hour beforehand.

People wanting to attend in person are being asked to register online with the Arts Centre.

The service will also be live streamed.

Durham made her first recording at 19, and achieved worldwide fame after joining The Seekers in 1963.

The band, also including Athol Guy, Keith Potger and Bruce Woodley, climbed the charts in the 1960s with hits including The Carnival is Over, A World of Our Own and Georgy Girl.


They became the first Australian band to achieve major chart and sales success in the United Kingdom and United States, eventually selling 50 million records.

Durham embarked on a solo career in 1968, recording with The Seekers again in the 1990s.

Other Australian music greats have also been remembered of late; singer Archie Roach passed away in July and Olivia Newton John died in August.
