Sydney Town Hall is a magnificent building one of the grandest surviving buildings in Australia. It is a major landmark in the heart of the city and it’s steps a favourite meeting point.
The inside is equally imposing. Walk through the exquisitely carved red cedar doors into a world of yesteryear. The intricate Victorian plaster work is rated as one of the most lavish and interesting Victorian interiors in Australia.
The main hall was being set-up for a function and we were not allowed inside, so just took this photo from the doorway, a tantalizing look at this imposing interior that has recently been returned to the former glowing Victorian colours.
Tours can be arranged with the “friends of the Town Hall” but at this time of the year it is fully booked for functions, so that is another “must-do” for our next visit to Sydney.
What a transformation after dark. With the modern technology of lasers and computerized animation the Town Hall lit up into a magical Christmas wonderland display, constantly changing colours and playing Christmas music to the delight of young and old.
This was another magical and unexpected pleasure during our Sydney visit.
