The Adelaide Town Hall with its regal clock tower and imposing Victorian era presence stands as a grand landmark heritage building and a prime feature on King William Street.Steeped in South Australian history, it was built in 1866 and is a tribute to the skills of architect and former Mayor of the City (1859), Edmund Wright who used mainly local materials in its construction, namely Tea Tree Gully freestone and Dry Creek bluestone.

Its central location makes it easily accessible via a variety of public transport options. Numerous public parking venues and a plethora of accommodation choices are all within walking distance.Over the years the Town Hall has played host to some of the world’s most famous people past and present and continues to play a key role in festival openings and other notable concerts and events throughout the year. It is the chosen venue for the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, Musica Viva Australia, the Australian Chamber Orchestra and the Australian String Quartet.

The Auditorium holds the $1.3 m Walker & Sons Organ. At the time it was installed in 1990, it was the largest mechanical action instrument to have been built in the UK in 100 years. Its presence attracts overseas organists year-round and it is available for hire use.
Taking second pride of place in the Auditorium is a $300,000 Steinway Grand Piano also available for hire use. It can add a prestigious and rare element to your event.

It is a palatial scene as you enter through the central double doors of the Town Hall into the ground floor foyer. The marriage of historical and contemporary grandeur simply works. To the right, a wide and sweeping marble staircase ascends to the upper level while the impressive Auditorium lies directly in front. Next door is the captivating Banqueting Room with its intricately detailed walls and ceilings. The foyers, conference rooms, Meeting Hall and the magnificent high arched Balcony, all come together to offer you a variety of event spaces to consider.
