Paddington Town Hall restoration 

Paddington Town Hall is an impressive example of the Victorian free classical architectural style. It is adjacent to the Victoria Barracks at the highest point on the Oxford Street ridge, on the corner of Oxford Street and Oatley Road.

The heritage-listed building, which was built in the late 1800s, features a 32-metre high clock tower which was completed in 1905 to commemorate the coronation of King Edward VII.

Today, Paddington Town Hall forms part of the City’s Venue Management collection. It caters to a wide range of community uses and events including corporate functions, arts and cultural organisations, weddings, film shoots, community groups, charities and schools and is available for public hire.

Façade restoration

The City of Sydney restored the façade of Paddington Town Hall to ensure this historic and valued building continues to be accessible and welcoming for a range of community uses. The Town Hall’s original features were carefully restored to protect the building into the future. Works also included measures to improve the building’s environmental footprint.


Work began in May 2012 and was completed in 2013.
