CITY HALL

CELEBRATE IN BRISBANE’S HEART OF CIVIC AND COMMUNITY PRIDE

Opening in 1930, Brisbane City Hall sits at the heart of the Queensland Capital and is a symbol of civic and community pride. It is a result of its enduring role both within its civic function and community accessibility that Brisbane City Hall is one of the city’s most popular and coveted locations for corporate and private functions, and special events.

As you enter the magnificent King George Square foyer the grandness of the marble staircases and the vaulted ceiling sand mosaic tiled floor herald something special for you and your guests.  It is a sense of arrival like no other venue in Brisbane and sets the tone for extraordinary and memorable occasions, no matter how big or small.

Working in harmony with the grand architectural backdrop, our approach to every event is contemporary and fresh. Our people deliver culinary and service excellence to create lasting impressions for events from 20 to 2,000 guests with a choice of 9 rooms and locations.

The Main Auditorium is the largest single space in Brisbane City Hall and one of the most photographed and renowned parts of the building. Its circular design with fluted pilasters around the perimeter is based on the Pantheon of Rome.

The high ceiling, equipped with the latest lighting and audio-visual equipment, forms the background to the room’s focal point, a 23 metre high central lantern. The newly restored timber floor, large stage, semi-circular balcony and grand organ are surrounded by a decorative frieze by Australian artist, Daphne Mayo, featuring six medallions each containing a portrayal of a life sized classical nymph clashing cymbals or blowing a trumpet.

The Main Auditorium is an ideal function space for large-scale gala events, ceremonies, concerts and performances.
