Free tour is a great wealth of information. Exploring the history of this grand building was both amazing and educational. It is certainly worth visiting. There is also the museum in the Brisbane City Hall which we found very interesting and also worth making this part of your Brisbane experience!

Many visitors will remember the City Hall from decades past: the tall stone columns, the round auditorium, the imposing pipework of the Norman and Beard Pipe Organ and the dome ceiling. The restoration works carried out in recent years have resulted in a building equipped for all types of functions. The museum/art gallery space has interesting visiting exhibitions. The organ...

This has since been rejuvenated a number of times and is very popular with lunchtime crowds, displays, protests and all sorts of gatherings. The City Hall building underwent... More

I suggest if you want to undertake the tour go early as they only take 6 people per tour and it books out at times. The information on Brisbane was interesting and also had interactive elements. Very nice staff there on the day I visited.

I had some time to kill, so I went to the City Hall. I was surprised with the Brisbane Museum and the free tour of the Clock tower. Staff were very helpful and friendly and made my experience all the better. So if you are a Brisbane local, or a visitor, check it out! You might be as impressed as... More

We really enjoyed the guided tour around the building and learning it's history. Ok the buildings are not very old but the Australians we met are proud of their country and heritage buildings and the guide's enthusiasm was infectious! We went from the basement right up to the clock tower and heard the bell chime. There was a small museum... More
