Brisbane 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.

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; City Hall’s operation as a respite centre during the Second World War and its current iteration which includes Museum of Brisbane. Tours are tailored to each group according to age and curriculum area of interest.
