The Box Hill Town Hall has been a place for community members to meet, learn and celebrate for many years. Home to 17 not-for-profit organisations, a Council-run customer service centre and the Artspace Gallery, the town hall sits in the heart of Box Hill and provides multiple services to the residents. 

The Art Deco Main Hall and nine meeting rooms located in the Box Hill Town Hall are available for hire. Regularly used for scenes in local television dramas, the town hall is a National Trust registered building with commercial kitchens and an onsite catering option. 


Officially opened in 1935, the stately Box Hill Town Hall is considered to be the City of Whitehorse’s historic landmark building. 

Originally part of the City of Box Hill, the previous Town Hall was initially constructed in 1872 on Canterbury Road, moving to the Box Hill site as construction for the current Town Hall began in 1934.  

The Box Hill Town Hall was built to the design of J. S. Gawler and J. C. Aisbett and opened in 1935. The Town Hall has since hosted many notable events for the community including weekly dances and dinners, concerts, weddings, vaccinations, and political meetings. 

After the City of Whitehorse was proclaimed in December 1994, the administrative functions of the Town Hall were transferred to the Whitehorse Civic Centre in 1996.  

The Town Hall is now registered with the National Trust and remains a core part of community life, with regular events and exhibitions, the Whitehorse Artspace gallery, a Customer Service Centre, and the Community Hub. 


Take a tour through the Town Hall and experience the grandeur of a heritage listed Art Deco style building. 

Built in the 1930s, the Town Hall tour highlights significant architectural features, the old Council Chambers, Artspace Gallery and rooms that have serviced the community for more than 80 years.
