Box Hill Town Hall is a commanding landmark within the City of Whitehorse. Rich in history and built before WWII, the Box Hill Town Hall played a key role in the war effort for the local community. Today the building is described by the Heritage Review as ‘an excellent example of austere classical revival design applied to a major monumental public building.’ Box Hill Town Hall is of outstanding aesthetic, historical and social significance. The building houses a grand function hall and lower hall, several majestic meeting rooms, the Artspace Gallery and old Box Hill Council Chambers which are presented with their architectural design features preserved.
