The tower’s detailing is impeccable: it also features an Ionic aedicule, triple-arched corbelling, figures of cast miners, octagonal capping, and much more.
Architecture-wise, the structure’s front area was designed by an acclaimed Stawell Shire Engineer named John D’Alton in 1872; though other elements were added later on, such as the landmark clock tower and the rear hall.
For the Stawell community, the town hall is a socially and historically significant because it is home to the local government and the site of numerous community events.
Some of the amenities found in the Stawell Town Hall include an event venue that can accommodate over 400 people, toilets and showers, disabled amenities, a projector, function tables and chairs, parking, and a kitchen.
Stawell Town Hall is located at 63-65 Main Street.
