The hub of cultural and civic activity for the people of Melbourne since the 1870s, the Town Hall continues to be used for an array of events including balls, fairs, concerts and Melbourne Comedy Festival shows.
Built between 1867 and 1870 from plans by the architect who designed the Royal Exhibition Buildings and State Library, the Town Hall is a monument to the glory days of Victoria's Gold Boom. Recent renovations have managed to preserve much of its grand character and unique period features. Don't miss taking a peek at the wonderful organ in the Main Hall, which dates from 1929 and was recently rebuilt.
