Architect: Henry Hunter

Designed by Henry Hunter, the Town Hall was constructed using sandstone quarried from the River Derwent at Bridgewater and Knocklofty. It opened in 1866 with a grand ball which went from dusk until dawn and has hosted countless public and private events since. Originally housing the police force and magistrates court, the building also boasts what is considered one of the finest historic pipe organs in Australia.

This year, tours will be lead by The Rt Hon Lord Mayor of Hobart, Councillor Anna Reynolds.
