The building gained international fame in 1964, when the "Beatles" ( a 1960's Rock Group), stood on the town hall's first floor balcony, and the street was lined with... More

Loving the Reconciliation Room that the ACC has put in. The artwork in there is amazing especially the Bluey Roberts piece. What a great thing for a Council to do.

Town Hall has a lot of interesting history, the Beatles and the Pope both visited and stood at the hall. It's a good place to briefly check out as a tourist.

As a local, it's all too easy to stop "seeing" some of the stunning architecture around us. The Adelaide Town Hall is a good example, for me. We recently attended a concert in the main hall, as we have done a number of times in the past and we had time to reflect on what a magnificent building it truely... More

On a rainy day it is a good idea to visit the Town Hall of Adelaide. It is an old building ( for this city) and has a lot of nice history to tell. Has also a very nice audotorium. The high point was in my view the Reconciliation Room, something you will not usually find in a town hall.

Yes you may find bigger and better in the UK but this town hall is stunning. Architecturally is is spectacular and worth a stop to look at. Unfortunately we were unable to go in (bad timing) but admired the building outside.

Typical new-world british colony period architecture. Worth a visit, but if you've been in the UK this is nothing to scream about.
