Take 15 mins out of your day and pop up to the Clock Tower for a free tour and gain some knowledge of Brisbane and take a very old lift ride to see behind the face of the clock.

Brisbane City Hall built in 1930 and was once the city's tallest building now totally overshadowed with higher rise buildings, only walked past this since the refurbishment, city square continues to be upgraded but still needs shade/trees/seating so this can be a place where people can sit and reflect

We did the 45 minutes guided tour and the 15 minute clock tower tour, one after the other. The tour of the City hall was very informative and puts into perspective the relative age and recent and rapid development of Brisbane. You get to see how the building was originally constructed and are told about the recent renovations to save... More

Used to visit as a child with Mum. Wow, we actually had fun here. Rabbit warren. Interesting to see clock tower, if it's open to public.

I did a conducted tour of the building which I found to be very interesting, a visit to the basement area is a must to see the wall of signatures and a sample of the concrete cancer which has been completely eradicated. A visit to the clock tower is also a must and after the tour stop in at the... More

we decided to be a tourist in our own city and booked a free tour and went up the clock tower. The tour was great especially the war walls under the building that have been preserved. The clock tower is an interesting way to see how the city has grown. Combine it with a cuppa at the shingle inn and... More

The Brisbane City Hall is an imposing building from the outside, once inside you realise the beauty of the building. Much money was spent in refurbishing and it is very evident it was worth the money. There are free tours of the building, with a guide. The 3rd floor houses a very good museum The Museum of Brisbane where the... More

We went on the 45 minute tour and also the tower tour- both free and really worthwhile. The auditorium ands dome is spectacular. The largest city hall in Australia, the Neo classical building with its gorgeous internal decoration need lots of time to really appreciate. A wonderful place - and containing the Museuam of Brisbane which also looks very worthwhile... More
