  • This is a lovely building and certainly worth a visit. I think it has had a makeover in recent times......and has been very nicely done. At King George Square......and FREE! 
  • 舊市政廳仿希臘神殿的立面 其實並不特別 不過 整棟建築的量體夠大 加上高聳的鐘樓 顯得特別氣派 現已改為博物館 若沒時間進入參觀 也可在前方喬治廣場欣賞鄰近建築 像亞伯特教堂等

  • Koala populations have declined alarmingly due to heavy development and car strikes. The declines are rapidly increasing in the area east of Brisbane. The world is shocked and disappointed at this city's treatment and negligence of its most symbolic animal. The city administration needs to find better ways to protect the few hundred remaining. Please urge the city and government officials to implement effective koala protection strategies such as wildlife highway bridges and to increase public awareness along with legal enforcement.
  • I was lucky enough to tour the hall the week it was opened to the public and then attend a function there several weeks later, the building looks beyond amazing, the architecture and attention to detail in the renovations is remarkable
  • Beautiful architecture in the centre of the city. Great to sit outside and enjoy the view
  • Absolutely beautiful building with a free museum about Brisbane. The main auditorium is really beautiful as well.
  • Stunning architecture and worth a look around. You could get lost in the many rooms.
