Sydney Town Hall

Sydney Town Hall
Sydney Town Hall

Sydney Town Hall – Renowned for its high Victorian interiors and rich decoration, Sydney Town Hall is the largest and most ornate late 19th century civic building in Australia. When completed in 1889, it was the colony’s most daring, technologically innovative and controversial building, and it dominated the Sydney skyline for almost a century.

Constructed with extravagant scale and style between 1886 and 1890, this landmark building is a remarkable example of Victorian architecture. It features a Tasmanian blackwood and tallowwood floor and the famous 9,000 pipe Grand Organ, which spans the entire width of the western wall. There are 21 stained glass windows adorned with Australian flora, a stunning ornate 20-metre-high ceiling and twelve marbled pillars in the corners of the hall.

REVIEWS:

“Went there to see the Body World Vital exhibition. A quiet and historical place. The exhibition is very educative even to the adults. But…a little bit creepy when you see the skeleton and muscle…you can hire a electronic guide for $5 extra to listen to more explanation of the items.” -William Chow

REVIEWS:

“Customs House is one of the historical gems at Circular Quay. It’s a museum and library and tourist hubs. Trendy exhibitions are housed here as well as a solid collection of national and international newspapers. Many locals read their daily paper at Customs House. If you leave the ground floor and head up to the top level, you will find laptop work stations around the interior windows. Be sure to make it to the most special space in the building. The reading room has views of the Harbour Bridge and classic long wooden tables with lamps and power outlets. Find a nice space and settle if you have a project or reading to complete.” -Sydnye Allen
