Brisbane City Hall, Australia

Doors of Brisbane City Hall

Brisbane City Hall is the pride of the city’s heritage buildings.  When the Hall opened in 1928 it was one of Australia’s most expensive structures. Second only in cost to the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

The original A£480,000 budget estimated by architects Prentice and Hall blew out to over A£1,000,000.

The building underwent extensive restorations from 2010 to 2013. Most of the original interior features have been kept.
