This building dates back to 1866, when it was hailed as being the largest municipal building south of the Equator! Today, it stands as a notable example of Colonial architecture. You can go for a walk inside during the day, and admire the ornate decor. Also, it is an important concert and entertainment venue, hosting a broad range of performers.... More

This is a beautiful building inside and out. The informative tours allow you to see into the heart and private areas where royalty have visited. Elegantly furnished rooms, decor and paintings etc. Of course, concerts etc are enjoyed by locals.

I assume this is the Adelaide town hall and not Norwood Town Hall. Is a great landmark, have not been to a function inside for years but was always very impressive.

Last time we visited the Town Hall was during a seminar with the Tibetan spiritual master, Sogyal Rinpoche. The hall is excellent for these kind of gatherings, but also for recitals, since the acoustics is quite good in there.

I have seen a couple of live shows' at this venue and the decor has always impressed me, a lovely insight into early Adelaide. This building is heritage listed and always worth a tour when they are available.
