Town Hall, Sydney: 11 reviews and 13 photos

Possibly most rewarding for architecture buffs though you will be hard-pressed to ignore Town Hall's presence. I made a stop here partly to meet up with a friend, and partly to take in the architectural details. (Plus, it was raining outside)

extracted from the website below:
..."For more than a century it has been the city?s major public and civic building, its clock a popular landmark and the marble steps leading up to the entrance one of Sydney?s favourite meeting places.

The Town Hall is the seat of the city's government and the venue for meetings of the City of Sydney Council.

Built in the grand Victorian manner from local sandstone, the building has been beautifully restored to its original form.

One of the finest examples of High Victorian architecture and decoration in Australia, it features a magnificent wood-lined concert hall, an 8000 pipe grand organ and exquisitely crafted stained glass windows.

The Sydney Town Hall is an impressive centre for civic and cultural events and its state of the art facilities make it one of Sydney?s most exciting venues"...
