City Hall, Brisbane

4.4
One of Brisbane’s most renowned sights, elaborate, stone-columned City Hall stands out against the backdrop of a number of the city’s glassy skyscrapers. Opened in 1920 and built in the style of the Italian Renaissance, the building has hosted royal receptions, concerts, flower shows, and political meetings. The 91 m (298 ft) clock tower makes City Hall one of the most iconic, recognizable images of Brisbane.

  • Great building. Free tours during the day. Worth a visit. The tour guide was knowledgeable and polite. The shingle inncafe was a lovely environment for drinks but service was slow and forgetful!!
  • Was nice once got inside. However it took an hour in line to get through the doors for an event. And I would hate to see how long it takes to get out in an emergency. Very poorly operated..1 door open to enter and exit..seriously..
  • Had a great night out watching the Christmas parade. The kids loved it.
  • Pretty city but too many angry ppl lol
  • Well kept, recently renovated building that has a lot of things that are open to the public to do inside.
