Culture Secrets - Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Melbourne Town Hall Grand Organ

Address: 90-120 Swanston St, Melbourne Town Hall, Melbourne, Victoria 3000

Phone: 03 9658 9658  


Featuring some 10,000 pipes capable of pumping 90,000 cubic feet of air per minute, the Town Hall’s ornate Grand Organ is something of a huge secret. The largest of its kind in the Southern hemisphere, visitors can literally walk through the instrument on supervised tours. But perhaps the best way to feel its awesome sonic might is via a recital. The City of Melbourne hosted-concerts are typically free or low cost. But perhaps more impressive than the sound produced is the sight of a player in action - it’s the very definition of multi-tasking.
