Heritage-listed Brisbane City Hall is the backdrop to many cultural, social and civic events and is considered by many to be the heart of our city.

Built between 1920 and 1930, City Hall is classified as a significant site in Brisbane and it is rich with art, architecture as well as local government history. In 2009, it was discovered that the building suffered from severe structural problems. After a three year restoration the building was re-opened in April 2013.

The newly restored City Hall is one of Brisbane’s most iconic buildings, lovingly known as ‘the People’s Place’. It provides an opportunity to learn about the art, architecture and history of our city.
