A well-known landmark on George Street
Sydney Town Hall has been a major landmark in the heart of the city for over 130 years, with its steps possibly Sydney's best-used rendezvous point. Today it is a workplace, hireable venue and a seat of local government.
The town hall was built in the 1880s on the site of an old cemetery from local Sydney sandstone.
