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.

    We visited the (free) museum in here to learn a bit about Brisbane and quite enjoyed it, definitely worth a look for visitors to the city. It also houses small temporary exhibitions - we saw one on contemporary ink-based art by artists from China, Taiwan and Hong Kong which was excellent. Unfortunately we missed the guided tour so I can't comment on that but would have loved to have gone. The building itself is a solid example of aesthetically pleasing yet functional government architecture and it's great that it's situated on a square so it can be admired and is not overshadowed by surrounding buildings.
