Customs House

Starting the tour

Start from Central Station.

Section 1:
Directions:

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

Stopover:

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:
Directions:

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

Stopover:

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:
Directions:

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.

Stopover:

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.
