City Hall Tour

Discover the secrets of your heritage-listed City Hall building with a guided tour.

Discover one of Brisbane’s most culturally and historically significant landmarks on a tour of heritage-listed City Hall. The ‘People’s Place’ tells a rich tale of Brisbane’s past, due to its role as a place to celebrate, protest, mourn, take refuge and gather in times of war and peace.

A guided tour highlights many of these key moments, from its beginnings as a swampy waterhole, to the establishment of Brisbane’s first Council Chambers and City Hall’s operation as a respite centre during the Second World War, to its current iteration which includes Museum of Brisbane. Tours are tailored to each group according to age and interest areas.


A 60 minute guided tour of City Hall including information about the significance of the building – its’ history and the people who are important in this story.

Tours can be tailored to respond to your learning outcomes of local history, architecture and design, civics, or hospitality.
