Customs House


Starting the tour

Start from Central Station.

Section 1:

Turn right as you exit the station via the main entrance onto Ann Street. Immediately turn left onto Edward Street.


Edward Street is host to some of Australia’s most renowned designers, including menswear stores, high-end fashion and, for those who need pampering after shopping, day spas!

Section 2:

At the bottom of the hill, turn left onto Queen Street (after Adelaide Street). Continue straight for about ten minutes.


Australian street numbering has always thrown me a bit – you’ll notice that you’ll pass no. 388 (Westpac) then an office block which is no. 400, the Customs House is no 399. After spending a good minute or two trying to figure out where it could have gone, I spotted it further down the street.

Section 3:

After passing no 400 (the office block on the left), cross straight over at the traffic lights. The Customs House is about 50 metres down on the right-hand side. You can’t miss it.


Inside the decor is grand and sweeping, with luxurious function rooms and authentically restored staircases and halls. There is also a restaurant downstairs, suberbly located alongside the river with fantastic views of the Story Bridge.
Admission is free – free guided tours operate between 10-4pm on Sundays.
