A Moment in Time
Brisbane Town Hall, Queensland, Australia
The 70m clock tower that rises 91 meters above ground level, is based upon St Mark’s Campanile, in Venice Italy.
The four clock faces on each side of the tower are the largest in Australia.
Opened in 1930, the Brisbane Town Hall underwent major restoration work during 2011 and 2012 re-opening to the public in April 2013…
Hopefully tours to the top of the clock tower will resume 🙂
Have you been to the top of the
Brisbane Town Hall Clock Tower?
During the 50s, a visit to somewhere special was part of our school holiday activities. The Butter Board at Hamilton, the Telegraph printing office in Queen Street, Lone Pine Sanctuary, and the City Hall are among the ones I remember.
Of those, only the City Hall and Lone Pine still existed when I was looking for outings for my children in the 80s.
Hope the tower will be accessible after the current refurb.
Thanks for reminding me of those special times, Linda.
I’m a huge fan (and advocate) of exploring and enjoying one’s ‘home’ turf –
I’m hoping the clock tower will open again when the refurbishment is complete as taking the lift to the top is something I have yet to do 😉
