Historic Building On Queen Street
Nov 2019
This is one of few historic buildings on Queens Street and was opened in 1911. It sits on a wedge piece of land uo the hill. Apparently it has a large organ, the largest musical instrumebnt in New Zealand.

Pride of Auckland
Aug 2019 • Friends
As an Aucklander I’m really proud of the town hall. Last night I got to hear a concert which included the organ and it is a most magnificent thing. The acoustics in the Town Hall are absolutely amazing and therefore concerts are wonderful. The restoration several years ago have brought this beauty back to its best.

There are many venues within the Town Hall and it is worth just going to visit it and see the grandness.

The Original Town Hall - Heritage Building - The Finest 'Old Lady' on Queen Street.
Aug 2019
The Auckland Symphony Orchestra put on a free show for our visit. The 3 hours of 'Film Favourites' Family concert music was delightful. We are not normally classic or orchestra music people but this was surprisingly enjoyable. It was also a pleasure to see inside the wonderful old restored Town Hall again. Paul.

Wow! As a concert hall, it's an acoustic gem!!
Dec 2018
I heard a number of New Zealand Symphony Orchestra concerts here last year and intentionally sat in different parts of te hall to judge the acoustics. Except for seats directly above the orchestra,the sound was amazing. And the setting! A neo-Baroque style building built in 1911 and restored in 1997, it's pleasure to look at and a treat to be inside! The thunderous organ deserves a review of its own. Alas, the public can only see inside if they go to a concert (why no guided tours?) so go to a concert!! Upcoming shows on the Town Hall web-site.

Great venue acoustics
May 2018 • Couples
We visited Auckland Town Hall to see a rock band and was very much impressed. The venue is well laid out, making it early to walk around in a big crowd. The acoustics is amazing!! The massive organ is something to see. We would be happy to attend another event at this venue.

A great venue
May 2018 • Couples
I will no allow my most recent to Auckland Town Hall (to see Seether last night) colour my overall review. Past experience tells me that the great hall has great acoustics. I therefor attribute the terrible sound last night to an incompetent sound engineer. This is a small venue with about a 1500 person capacity. You are never very far from the stage. It is also one of the most beautiful concert halls in the Southern Hemisphere. Where else do you see a rock band performing with a huge organ as the backdrop.
The communal areas are not well laid out. There are always crowds gathered in hallways and long queues at the bar. The toilets are not well signposted, but they are clean and functional.
