 Melbourne Town Hall Tours



Free tours of Melbourne's historic Town Hall give visitors the chance to learn about the architectural, social and political significance of this impressive 19th century building.

Experience the grandeur of the wood-panelled Council Chamber, stand on the portico where the Beatles waved, sit in the Lord Mayor's chair and view the richly carved Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ, the largest grand romantic organ in the southern hemisphere. Rooms included in the tour are subject to availability.

A variety of groups can be accommodated, including local and international visitors, students of all ages, the disabled and delegations.
