Despite being a local, until this week I didn't know that there were regular tours inside the Adelaide Town Hall. Check their website and book a tour on-line, currently held on Monday mornings at 10am. Our tour guide was well informed of the history of Adelaide and the Town Hall building itself, so made for a brilliant tour. Some rooms... More

Located in the government district on Victoria Square, the Adelaide Town Hall is a central landmark of the city. Despite it being a government seat of the city, the Town Hall is also known for music. The Adelaide Symphony Orchestra regular performs concerts in the concert hall and the Beatles themselves famously perform from its balcony. Many people would hire... More

Running now is a neat little "projected light" show, with Christmas-y themes and other geometric patterned sequences. Projected from across the street (best vantage point), it's not nearly as good as the Customs House projections at Sydney's Circular Quay (during the annual Vivid event), but it is a worthy attempt worth a look.

We arrived in Adelaide after a long flight - parked our hire car for 10mins at the side of the road - went into Adina Apartment to find where to park - came out to find we had a $50 fine - next day we visited the town hall to pay our fine!! No sympathy

The Adelaide Town Hall, a stone's throw from Victoria Square; Victoria Square is South of the Town Hall. The "Town Hall", it is listed on the "Register of the National Estate". The building gained international fame in 1964, when the "Beatles" ( a 1960's Rock Group), stood on the town hall's first floor balcony, and the street was lined with... More

Loving the Reconciliation Room that the ACC has put in. The artwork in there is amazing especially the Bluey Roberts piece. What a great thing for a Council to do.

Town Hall has a lot of interesting history, the Beatles and the Pope both visited and stood at the hall. It's a good place to briefly check out as a tourist.
