Potentially the finest example of Brutalist architecture in the Southern Hemisphere, this tower also houses the Masonic Centre and museum.

At street level, it's just another office foyer. But gaze skyward, and you'll see some stunning architecture. The podium and tower, joined by an upside down pinhead, were constructed thirty years apart. The brutalist building is split into two sections: the Sydney Masonic Centre held within the lower half and the 35-floor Civic Tower above. Inside the clandestine Masonic Centre, you'll find the Museum of Freemasonry. Within the museum, you'll learn about the enigmatic history and heritage of the Freemasons. Plus, from Monday to Friday, you can tour the museum at 11am and 2pm and peek some areas not accessible otherwise.
