Auckland Town Hall is a prominent civic landmark of neo-Baroque style. Protected as a Category A heritage building, from 1994 to 1997 the building was fully restored, allowing the addition of modern amenities and re-establishing the building's standing as a multi-functional venue and world class performance hall.
