Sydney Town Hall, Sydney

4.2
Sitting opposite the Queen Victoria building is Sydney Town Hall, one of Australia's grandest surviving buildings, and a stunning example of 19th-century sandstone architecture. You can take photos of the impressive interior and exterior: The details on the roof are particularly striking. The clock, which is illuminated at night, was built in 1883. Once nicknamed The Wedding Cake Building, the building features ornate carvings, beautiful stained-glass windows, and a pipe organ that is the largest in the southern hemisphere.

  • This was a totally hip spot when I went, years ago. Nice cool vibe, lots of pretty folks everywhere. Nice spirits and cocktails. Then again anything cold and with a bit of alcohol would be good...  more »
  • This building is in the heart of Sydney CBD. This is where the Lord Mayor of Sydney had her office. Beautiful building to visit.  more »
