We took a tour of Adelaide town hall guided by a volunteer. She was very knowledgeable about Adelaide history in general and the town hall in particular. Because the size of the tour was small that day (just 4 people), she was able to customize the tour according to our interests. The whole building is very well restored and I... More

Adelaide is he first municipality incorporated in Australia. It is worth viewing the colonel light room which gives full story on the history of Adelaide, as to how the city was planned and built. Volunteer guide is available on demand.

Adelaide Town Hall is a heritage-listed building. It’s one of the greatest acoustic venues for symphonic concerts in Australia. So it’s the primary venue for Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. By seeing the colourfully illuminated stage, my Japanese friends wished to go to a concert. Unfortunately, however, nothing was scheduled during their visit to Adelaide.

If you are passing by the Town Hall it is certainly worth going inside and having a look around. The beautiful staircases are wide and inviting. The Auditorium is just stunning. The ceiling is beautiful. They don't make public buildings like these anymore. The Auditorium is huge. I have just been to a conference there and there were approximately 1,000... More

This is another beautifully maintained historical building. The building is impressive on the outside and the interior is even more so.

The Adelaide Town Hall was hailed as 'the largest municipal building south of the Equator' when it opened in 1866 and is still an impressive building today. I took advantage of a free, one hour tour offered by the Adelaide Town Hall. Our tour guide Glen was absolutely wonderful, full of interesting information and with a great depth of knowledge...
