They're using the old Sydney Town Hall while the Opera Theatre is being rebuilt. The hall itself has been beautifully maintained but does lack in the toilet department. But it's star rises when the music starts. We attended a performance of THAIS and the sound...More

Steeped in history beginning in 1868, this place is central to civic life. There were some amazing stained glass windows as well as the famous clock, the Victorian vestibule, the grand organ with 9000 pipes and the stylish council chamber. Various plaques, memorial tabllets and...More

Came here for a Citizenship Ceremony. Beautiful old building. Staff were all friendly and helpful and everything was so easy. Jazz band playing Australian songs in the corner. The Sydney Mayor presided over a lovely ceremony followed by Champagne and Australian cakes and biscuits!

What a beautiful old building! The interior is exquisitely maintained and it features a large pipe organ and a massive chandelier. not sure if it is open to tourists as I visited for a private function, but it would be well worth a visit.

From the outside the Town Hall looks like it needs a good wash. Also too much construction going on right in front. It is right across for the Queen Victoria building which is a must see for any tourist!!

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
