Start by targeting the iconic Brisbane City Hall Clock Tower anytime between 10 am and 5 pm. Please note that you must obtain a ticket on your visit from the Museum of Brisbane counter on Level 3. The Clock also does not chime over the weekends though, in case you’re going on a weekend.
Meanwhile, you can chill out and dine at Shingle Inn Cafe or Red Cross Cafe, two of the City Hall’s cafes with the former being located on the ground floor, via the King George Square entry. The Red Cross Cafe, on the other hand, operates as Commix Expresso and continues to be run by the Red Cross. Located on the basement level of City Hall with the exterior door facing the Adelaide Street side of City Hall, the cafe offers affordable meals and snacks.
The Museum of Brisbane showcases the living history of Brisbane and its people. Located on Level 3 with spectacular views of the clock tower and copper dome, you can look forward to diverse art exhibitions scheduled each month.
