  • Very nice building with great stone and look great view. But poop for garment when bell did rang make very loud. Child happy again shoe went wet with no lie.
  • 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.
  • Very historical place. Beautiful view and very strong Christmas atmosphere here right now. Lots of people, worthwhile visiting.
