South Melbourne Town Hall
South Melbourne Town Hall is a civic building located at Bank Place in South Melbourne, a suburb of Melbourne, Australia. It is of state heritage significance to Victoria being listed on the Victorian Heritage Register (H0217).
During the 1950s, the decorative mansard roof elements were removed.
After the amalgamation of the City of South Melbourne with the City of Port Melbourne and the City of St Kilda in 1994 to form the new City of Port Phillip, the Town Hall now functions as secondary offices for the new Port Phillip City Council.
The building was restored in 2004 from a government heritage grant, enabling the reinstatement of the decorative roof and iron cresting.
The South Melbourne Town Hall is now home also to the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM), which is the national centre for performance excellence for the further development of musicians with outstanding talent in Australia.
In 2012 Multicultural Arts Victoria, Victoria's peak arts organisation promoting cultural diversity in the arts, moved their home to the South Melbourne Town Hall.
