Holidays in Sydney Town Hall
Holiday Travel Guide

Discover one of Australia’s most historic and beautiful civic buildings at this popular meeting place in the heart of Sydney’s city centre.

Sydney Town Hall is an exquisite 19th-century sandstone building, which combines neoclassical and French architectural styles in a uniquely Australian blend. Located in central Sydney, the Town Hall is the foremost location for cultural expression and ceremony for Sydneysiders, with a history that is deeply entwined with that of the city.

Before entering the Town Hall, take a moment to appreciate its superb façade. Look for the carved sandstone decorations that cover the building’s exterior, including an early example of Sydney’s coat of arms and the wrought-iron cresting on its lavish rooftop. Admire the Town Hall clock tower, which soars 55 metres (180 feet) above street level and has been an iconic fixture of Sydney’s skyline since its completion in 1873. Spend time people-watching on the grand steps. This is also the site where the Lord Mayor of Sydney welcomes honoured citizens to the city.

Upon entering the building, take in the Centennial Hall. This dramatic venue is imbued with a strong sense of national identity, with stained-glass windows that feature native Australian flora. Marvel at the Grand Organ, which was the largest of its kind in the world when it was completed in 1890. Embellished with neoclassical ornamentation, it is still used to entertain audiences today with regular recitals.

Learn about the cultural heritage of Sydney and the history of its people through the range of curated galleries within the Town Hall. The artworks, furnishings and other objects on display offer a fascinating window into the city’s history.

Sydney Town Hall is open on weekdays and there is no admission fee; however, access to different areas of the building is often restricted by its event schedule. Located opposite the Queen Victoria Building and alongside St. Andrew’s Cathedral, the Town Hall is easily accessed by public transport. There is limited parking on nearby streets. Visit the Sydney Town Hall website to find details of what’s on or to book a private tour of the building.
