Brisbane City Hall

Built between 1920 and 1930, Brisbane City Council's heritage-listed City Hall sits in the heart of Brisbane City. It is an ideal setting for hosting events with its sweeping marble staircases, vaulted ceilings, chandeliers and mosaic-tiled floor. Having undergone a $215 million restoration, City Hall is the perfect place to explore Brisbane's history. Daily guided tours showcase the Main Auditorium, Father Henry Willis Organ and the iconic Clock Tower. 

The Museum of Brisbane, another feature of City Hall, exhibits artworks from the City of Brisbane collection. Contemporary exhibitions by some of the city's leading artists are also on show.
