Town Hall Tours

Grandiose in its Baroque design, Auckland’s Town Hall is one of Queen Street’s most prominent and notable buildings. Constructed back in 1911, the Town Hall is one of Auckland’s best venues for musical performances and shows, as its concert chamber is considered to have some of the best acoustics in the world. In the Great Hall, where over 1,500 people can gather in a theater-style setting, many of the world’s top symphonies and orchestras have performed for global dignitaries, and the biggest names in rock and roll have similarly graced the stage.

A permanent fixture is the Town Hall organ, which is not only New Zealand’s largest instrument, but having completed a restoration in 2010, is often considered as one the world’s most marvelous symphony instruments. Aside from the acoustics, Auckland’s Town Hall is visually stunning from the rafters down to the floor, as stained glass windows filter light that falls on kauri wood floors, and chandeliers dangle from a ceiling adorned with exquisite plaster design. It’s a building that was purposefully built to impress, and it continues to do so over a century later, right in the heart of downtown.
