Uncover the stories, history, and magic of the Auckland Town Hall with an incredible guided tour of this 110-year-old beauty!

Established over one hundred years ago in 1911, Auckland Town Hall is a long-standing icon of the city’s social, political and cultural life.  Join our knowledgeable guides for an intimate tour that invites you to step back in time and discover the colourful history of a venue that has welcomed some of the biggest names in music across its original kauri floors to perform in the Great Hall, including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who and Sir Elton John.

You’ll learn the fascinating history of this prominent landmark in neo-Baroque style, from its inception and design in the 1900s to its incredible restoration in the 1990s. Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra are in residence at the Auckland Town Hall, which is thought to have some of the finest acoustics in the world, as well as being home to the largest musical instrument in Aotearoa New Zealand, an incredible 110-year-old pipe organ.

I whakatūria mai i mua noa i te kotahi rau tau i te tau 1911, ko Te Hōro ā-Tāone o Tāmaki Makaurau tētahi o ngā tino whare o te tāone me ōna take pāpori, tōrangapū, ahurea anō hoki. Tūhono mai ki ā mātou kaiārahi matatau, ki ngā tāpoi hei hokinga mahara, hei tūhura i te hītori o te whare i whakatau i ngā mana nui o te ao puoro ki te whakangahau ki runga i te papa kauri o te Great Hall, pēnei i a The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who, i a Elton John anō hoki.  

Ka ako koe i ngā hītori whakamīharo o tēnei whare neo-Baroque, nō tōna whakatūnga me tōna whakahoahoatanga mai i ngā tau o te 1900, ki tōna whakahoutanga i ngā tau o te 1990. Ko te Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra e noho ana i te Te Hōro ā-Tāone o Tāmaki Makaurau, tētahi o ngā whare i te ao mō te kairangi o te hou mataaoho. Kei konei hoki te taonga puoro nui katoa i Aotearoa, arā, ko te pūkeru paipa mīharo e 110 tau te pakeke.
