  • This impressive building on George Street is in the middle of the city. Directly between St Andrew Cathedral and Queen Victoria Building. 3 highlights of the piece.

  • So far it looks pretty purple friends and jacaranda trees flower in one was the Town Hall. Flower said to sit on the ground at the stairs ago the rendezvous with a friend but did not use this 紫iro jakaranta, but rather that came ago, but only looking at the buildings and to clean, such as cherry blossoms in Japan did not think look. Jakaranta look at this town hall, certainly in the urban area and some trees are in bloom, but the trees are able to look extra pretty in contrast with the color of the building.

  • Queen Victoria building, opposite the Town Hall. Beautiful appearances at first mistook the Cathedral or church knew. In the heart of Sydney, and there are also plenty of restaurants or shops nearby, which come just once and you're seeing. 12-when you visit beautiful tree decorated felt more beautiful blooming flowers.

  • A great Sydney landmark building when it was built and has been preserved well for us to enjoy now. Have been to many concerts, art shows and even school graduations over the years - its a building with a rich history and well worth a visit and tour.
  • This is a beautiful building. It is exceptionally lit up at night. Great for photographers.
  • Amazing hall. Have been to many events here and all of them have been very good. The location and architecture certainly add to the experience.
  • Tour operate every Tuesday or sometimes Wednesday. It takes about two hours. It's worth to take it. You can take a look back stage and history of its building. Also free concert of organ is held once a month,Monday. Except Christmas season, they changed small amount of money. The concert is so wonderful that you wouldn't be able to believe it's free. This event is highly recommended.
  • Beautiful building with lots of history and worth a visit to see. I went to a conference here, however and due to the shape and how old the building is its not every suited for it. I would recommend a conference at another place.
