Spectacular city hall packed with architectural detail and civic symbolism. Lovely tour guide provided lots of interesting stories and pointed out interesting corners of the building. Easy to reach from shopping district or via busway. I would recommend this free tour for Brisbane visitors. Coffee and cakes in the Slip Inn 1930s interior cafe afterwards were a bonus!

Free tours run of the clock tower 15 min and the building 45min. Book at the museum desk. Whilst you can wander around by yourself the tour enables you to go the basement to see the wall where soldiers wrote their name and number. The view from the clock tower is good of surrounding city buildings. Go on the hour... More

A good place to while away some spare time. The interior is just beautiful and takes you back to another era. the displays are interesting and informative, and the ride in the old lift up to the top of the clock tower is worth the wait. All of this is free of charge as well.

A visit to the refurbished City Hall is very worthwhile. There is a new ceiling in the main auditorium and the organ has had a face lift. Many other areas have been upgraded and are worth a visit. It is strange to think that a building of this size was built over a swamp!!

The newly renovated Town Hall is really beautiful showcasing a by gone era. I loved looking around the marble staircase and the Shingle Inn Cafe was a treat, what a great feeling of being in a cafe that is a reminder of childhood outing with my grandparents. Somewhere to take grandchildren to enjoy the Fairy cakes.

A beautiful building in itself but worth visiting for the art and history that's on display within. The clock tower tour is well worth it for a better understanding of Brisbane and to see some spectacular views.
