Lift goes up City Hall Clock Tower every 15 minutes

REMEMBER when Brisbane's City Hall towered over its neighbours? It may be the small kid on the block now, but it is still an impressive building, especially after its recent facelift which saw it saved from imminent collapse.

Once upon a time, not so long ago, it was a great event taking the lift up to the top of the clock tower to gaze out over the city.

The view may be more restricted now, but you can still ride up to the top to explore this most iconic feature of the much-loved heritage-listed building.

Daily free tours are every 15 minutes, 10am-5pm.

Bookings are not required, but there is a limit on the number of people who can ride in the lift.

During peak times, there may be a wait for tours.

Get tickets on the day you visit from the Museum of Brisbane counter, Level 3, City Hall.

Since the building was opened more than 80 years ago, hundreds of thousands of visitors have taken in the view from the observation deck.
