Tours operate daily taking visitors up the Brisbane City Hall Clock Tower in a beautiful, old, hand-operated lift, providing a bird’s-eye view of the city. The clock tower has been in operation since the opening of City Hall in 1930, and is 87.47 metres high with an observation platform at 64 metres, which people can walk out onto to absorb the unique view of Brisbane. The city is ever-changing – what better a platform to watch from. Over the years, hundreds of thousands of visitors have taken a ride up to the clock tower. Whilst the view from the observation deck has changed significantly over the past 80 years, it is still a time-honoured tradition to “go up the Clock Tower”, a tradition which happily continues at Museum of Brisbane.
