Sydney Town Hall

Sydney Town Hall is one of the city’s most exemplary civic buildings; one that is easily recognised thanks to its distinct architectural design.

The building is on the Register of the National Estate, and it makes up a part of the Town Hall precinct, which includes several other significant buildings; such as the iconic Queen Victoria Building and St Andrews Cathedral.

The Town Hall was constructed in the 1880s, which was the location of the Old Sydney Burial Ground. Building the hall was made possible thanks to the availability of local sandstone, and what stands out is the use of the Victorian Second Empire Style.

Following its completion in 1889, the town hall was the region’s most bold building. It is thought that the technology used for this construction was quite innovative at the time. The Town Hall remained a landmark of the city’s skyline.

Today, the Sydney Town Hall is a favourite meeting place for Sydneysiders and visitors in the city. For those who would like to take a glimpse of the Hall’s magnificent structure, guided tours are scheduled for the public. The Hall remains open during business hours – from 8am and 6pm on weekdays.

It is important to note that owing to the busy schedule at the building, accessing various parts of the building may be restricted. Tours are also open to those who are deaf or have a hearing impairment, making this accessible for all.

During the tour, look out for the Grand Organ that often delights and excites organ enthusiasts. When it was installed in 1890, it was the largest of its kind across the world – a beautiful organ by all standards.

The Sydney Town Hall is located on George Street in the CBD, just above Town Hall Station. There are direct buses and trains to Town Hall, with limited street parking available and two car parks nearby at St Andrews and QVB.
