Built on a graveyard and completed in 1889, Sydney Town Hall is an impressive High Victorian building, topped by a clocktower with a two-ton bell. It has retained its original function and interiors, including the council chamber and lord mayor’s offices.
The stunning vestibule, its colourful domed ceiling hung with a huge crystal chandelier, has some of the earliest examples of Australian-made stained glass.
Behind this, Centennial Hall is dominated by a magnificent 8,000-pipe organ: with a capacity of 2,048, it was once the largest concert hall in the world, and it is still used for organ recitals and other musical events.
