The Fitzroy Town Hall is of historical significance as a symbol of the growth of Melbourne during the long boom prior to the 1890s. The building is representative of the aspirations and burgeoning wealth of Melbourne during the gold rush years and a manifestation of local government rivalry, which led to the construction of a number of grand town halls throughout the city's suburbs. The Fitzroy Town Hall is of architectural significance as a most intact and exemplary High Victorian building and for its association with two prominent Melbourne architects. It features grand Corinthian porticos and temple forms and an unusual clock tower. The building's freestanding form, fine interiors and multitude of prominent foundation stones are also distinctive. It wasn't far to walk to from Brunswick Street and it's a stunning building. It's grandeur almost seems out of place. It does encourage one to look beyond what they think a suburb is all about... you won't see this as you are heading up/down Brunswick on a tram... you need to get out and explore. I was walking back towards the city when I turned left into Moor Street and there it was on the corner of Napier and Moor. From there you can see the soul of Fitzroy as you wander through suburban streets,

Meeting room and an 1880’s ball room that is great for functions, larger meetings or a party. The library has an excellent selection of magazines to browse, as well as fast free wifi.

If you are in Brunswick Street Fitzroy you can wander down King William Street and stumble onto one of the hidden suburban treasures in among the back streets. The Fitzroy Town Hall is a remnant of the glory days of the inner city suburbs when each city had its own administration and civic buildings. Even if you can't get in, you can wander around tis great structure and soak up the history of one of Melbourne's oldest and colourful suburbs.
