Brisbane City Hall Clock and Clock Tower

Yesterday I went to see Brisbane from the Clock tower at City Hall.   http://www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/facilities-recreation/parks-venues/brisbane-city-hall/city-hall-history-heritage/city-hall-clock-tower

  • when the clock was built, it was the largest public clock and most modern time-keeping piece in Australia
  • the clock face is almost five metres in diameter
  • the minute hands of the clock are three metres long
  • over 1,000 screws hold the white opal clock face in place
  • the clock chimes are known as Westminster or Cambridge and consist of four bells weighing over three tonnes that chime every 15 minutes and a 4.3 tonne striking bell that marks the hour
  • the clock tower is 92 metres high, with an observation platform at 76 metres
  • the clock tower was the tallest structure in Brisbane until the 1960s and was fitted with a red beacon at its apex to warn aircraft of this location

Take a ride up to the iconic City Hall clock tower from 10am to 5pm, seven days a week. Entry is free.

Bookings for clock tower tours are not required, but you must obtain a ticket in person on the day of your visit from the Museum of Brisbane counter on Level 3 of City Hall. There is a limit on the number of people who can ride in the lift. During peak times there may be a wait for these tours. It is recommended you arrive early to avoid disappointment.

The City Hall clock does not chime over the weekends at the request of local businesses, churches and hotels.
