Built between 1920 and 1930, the heritage-listed Brisbane City Hall is seen as the heart of Brisbane and has been the backdrop to many cultural, social and civic events.

City Hall is the civic seat of the city and is home to the Lord Mayor and Deputy Mayor. It also plays host to community and corporate events each day. Unlike a heritage home, it is a busy and active working building, so you may find that some of the rooms and features are not open to the public on certain days. Accompanied by a professional guide, these tours provide further access to different parts of the building as possible.

The clock tower has been in operation since the opening of City Hall in 1930, and is 87.47 metres high with an observation platform at 64 metres, which people can walk out onto to absorb the unique view of Brisbane. Our city is ever-changing – what better a platform to watch from. Over the years, hundreds of thousands of visitors have taken a ride up to the clock tower. Whilst the view from the observation deck has changed significantly over the past 80 years, it is still a time-honoured tradition to “go up the Clock Tower”, a tradition which happily continues at Museum of Brisbane.
