What does the Town Hall mean to you?

Consultation has concluded

Hobart’s Town Hall turns 150 this year.

Do you have a story or memory of the Town Hall that you’d like to share with Hobartians 50 years from now?

We are looking for stories and mementos of the Town Hall for a time capsule that will be interred this year for opening in 2066 on the Town Hall’s 200th anniversary.

Did you:
  • meet the love of your life at a Town Hall dance?
  • become an Australian citizen in the magnificent ballroom?
  • pound the stage at an Eisteddfod?
  • rabble rouse at a public meeting?
  • grow the winning dahlia at one of the floral shows?
  • know someone who has been an alderman?
If you have an interesting tale to tell, you can submit your story using the story telling tab below. You will need to register first.

Alternatively, you can provide your story and send us your memento with your name and address to:

Town Hall 150 Time Capsule
50 Macquarie Street
Hobart TAS 7000

or email us your story and photo of your memento, to: marketing@hobartcity.com.au

Share your Town Hall story today....and in 2066!

  • My connections with the Hobart Town Hall

    by JaneBell, over 2 years ago

    On the first of March 1968, as a new student at the University of Tasmania, I attended the Fresher’s Dance which was held in the Hobart Town Hall. I danced with the tallest young man in the room, and the only one wearing shorts if memory serves me correctly! Three years later, to the day, we were married. The young man was (the late) Robert Bell who went on to become an Alderman of the City of Hobart, 1988-1992. I don’t think either of us imagined this outcome in 1968!
