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.

Saw the Australian Doctors Orchestra there and it sounded great. Good to visit and find out about South Australian history.

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...

It really is just a town hall and there's only really functions and meetings inside, but it is interesting to note that this was the first town hall built in Australia and was the same hall in which The Beetles stood on and waved to their largest audience (300,000 people), so I guess that's something.

Whilst the building has historic charm and character it ends when you walk in the front door and are met with a big sign saying "all visitors report to security" and rope cordoned off areas suggesting the public is not welcome to stroll in and look around. When that person is busy doing other things you might as well just... More

The Adelaide Town Hall is an iconic building on the main street of Adelaide, King William Street. We had booked into a free tour, which lasts one hour. Bookings are from the council website. The five of us met in the foyer at 10 am and there was only one other person on the tour, a German tourist. The volunteer... More

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
