Brisbane City Hall

Brisbane City Hall has recently emerged from a long restoration and renovation project to bring it up to current structural and safety standards.

It’s been a long time since I visited this building which was, up until the 1960s, the highest building in the city. The main auditorium holds more than a few memories for me, none the least of which was a performance of The Dudley Moore Trio. A post-show not-by-invitation back stage visit with my friend resulted in a meeting with Dudley himself and a program full of autographs.

Here are some images. The last shot was taken inside the clock tower lift.
