Completed in 1870, Melbourne Town Hall is at the heart of the city's cultural and civic activity, hosting theater performances, weddings, receptions, and art exhibitions. The heritage-listed building has played a key role in many historic decisions that have shaped Melbourne over the last 140 years. It still serves as the city’s central municipal building and the seat of the city government. Designed by well-known local architect Joseph Reed, the landmark features a clock tower and the iconic Council Chambers. A free concert series offers visitors the opportunity to learn all about the site’s renowned Grand Organ, comprising 147 ranks and 9,568 pipes.

Beautiful old building - has so much history in it. Recommend taking a tour to look at all the old pictures, the council chambers and the ballroom. The gardens out the front are always a pleasant change from the concrete jungle, and are changed with each season.
We're lucky to have this as our local town hall. Great place to visit on business. The staff are very professional and helpful. Avoid going during lunch hour though, as everything takes longer.
