Box Hill Town Hall is a commanding landmark within the City of Whitehorse, in Melbourne's eastern suburbs. Built before WWII, the building houses the Old Council Chambers (which have appeared in many TV series and feature films) and the grand Main Hall, as well as several majestic function rooms, the Whitehorse Artspace gallery and the Community Hub, which is home to 17 not-for-profit organisations, including the Box Hill Historical Society.

What's On

Sign up on the day for guided tours of this historical building that dates back to 1934, or ask questions and listen to stories and anecdotes from a former mayor and councillors who will be in attendance in the Old Chambers.

There will also be a book sale and an exhibition in the All Nations Foyer entitled _Suburban Utopia. _The exhibition will feature artworks from the Whitehorse Art Collection and Box Hill Historical Society that represent houses and abodes in the Whitehorse municipality and the changing aspirations of the people who dwell within.
