Melbourne Town Hall

The Melbourne Town Hall on Swanston Street is a magnificent heritage building and historical treasure in the heart of the city.

Prior to the building of a town hall, the Mechanics’ Institute in Collins Street (now the Athenaeum) was rented as temporary quarters where the Council carried out its business and affairs.

More information (including venue map, disabled entrances and assistive listening devices) is available at the Melbourne Town Hall website.
