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.
