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.

  • This at first glance is not a great venue however they fit everyone in and nearly everyone had a great view. We were in the main hall, semi circular entry in 1 of 5 doors. Seats were close together an...  more »
  • I wandered in to the foyer with no expectation and was greeted with a marvel of choices. There's food, there's an art gallery, a gift shop and more. And even a guided tour up the clock tower..Free!  more »

  • Embarrassed to say I have not really been to City Hall in many years. They have done such a great job of the guided tours and Brisbane Museum. Not a huge exhibit but lots of relevant interactive displays, plus a cool interactive art projection that my little one played in front of for a good thirty minutes. Such a beautiful old building as well.
  • Plenty to do here, especially if there's an exhibit or show on. Clock tower is worth a visit, as is the museum if you're interested in the local history. There's a coffee shop inside, which is very much on the expensive side but there's plenty of cheap food only a short walk away if you don't like the price. Parking onsite is also expensive but there is high-frequency public transport available very close so it's not usually an issue either.
  • 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!!
  • Full of history must see if you are hitting brisbane for a day out
  • There's a Brisbane museum up on the top floor which is a good place to look half an hour and it's free too!
