Sydney Town Hall

Immediately to the south of the QVB stands the Sydney Town Hall, a wildly extravagant piece of Victoriana, now the seat of city government.

Erected in 1868, it was built on the site of a convict burial ground – as recently evidenced by the accidental discovery of an old brick tomb. While you’re here, slip inside for a look at the Grand Organ, which was built in London by William Hill & Son and installed in the Concert Hall in 1890.

Free lunchtime concerts, lectures and other events are held occasionally. 483 George St.
