Brisbane City Hall

One of the first walks out with my camera in Australia was around the city centre of Brisbane. Walking along Ann Street from my hostel I came to King George Square. As you can see from this photograph, the square is dominated by the city hall on the south west side. It was opened in 1930 and surprisingly only has three floors. With the huge 70 metre clock tower I thought at first this could have been a church or cathedral. Clearly, the architects were influenced by St Mark’s Campanile in Venice, Italy.
