Richmond Town Hall is a civic building located on Bridge Road in Richmond, a suburb of Melbourne, Australia.

After the amalgamatian of the City of Richmond with the City of Collingwood and the City of Fitzroy in 1994 to form the new City of Yarra, the Town Hall became the corporate headquarters for the new Yarra City Council.

Architecture[edit]

Built in the 1890s, the original Richmond Town Hall in the Venetian Gothic Revival style, consisting of polychrome brickwork and a large tower. In the 1930s the Town Hall's facade was remodeled in the Interwar Academic Classical Revival style, with Art Deco decorations, to become the Richmond City Hall.

Some sections of the rear of the building and interior spaces retain the original Victorian era detailing. The 'Richmond Town Hall' was refurbished in 1991.
