Sydney Town Hall, Sydney

4.1
Sitting opposite the Queen Victoria building is Sydney Town Hall, one of Australia's grandest surviving buildings, and a stunning example of 19th-century sandstone architecture. You can take photos of the impressive interior and exterior: The details on the roof are particularly striking. The clock, which is illuminated at night, was built in 1883. Once nicknamed The Wedding Cake Building, the building features ornate carvings, beautiful stained-glass windows, and a pipe organ that is the largest in the southern hemisphere.

  • I saw it from the outside, but it is a profound structure that I feel history. If you're going to Sydney, it's best to take a look. The St. Andrews Cathedral was just as historic. When I was peeping at the inside of a couple, it was very friendly, "come because there is healing tonight" and "take a leisurely look". There was a stained glass and a pipe organ, and it was a really beautiful cathedral. There was a grand piano of Yamaha's age thing, and it was allowed to play only a little with "it is good". Because the time of the return flight was approached, the concert at night was not able to go, and it became a wonderful memory though it was regrettable.
