The Comedy Festival or paying a parking fine don’t have to be the only times you get to peek inside the hallowed doors of Melbourne Town Hall.

Every weekday free tours run at 11am and 1pm for about an hour, giving you the chance to see a really big (musical) organ, sit in the Lord Mayor’s chair (its scotch-guarded) and stand where The Beatles waved to the unwashed masses during their brief Melbourne tour.

WHEN: Weekdays at 11am and 1pm
WHERE: Melbourne Town Hall, cnr Swanston and Collins Sts, Melbourne
BOOKINGS:  03 9658 9658 or email
