Petersham Town Hall has had a brush with fame when some of the flamboyant dancing scenes from director Baz Luhrmann's 1992 film Strictly Ballroom were filmed in its main auditorium.

Opened in July 1938, Petersham Town Hall is located on the corner of Crystal and Frederick Streets in Petersham. It is situated opposite Marrickville Council's administration building.

The art deco styled town hall features a prominent hexagonal clock tower, it is the second town hall to have been built on the same site.

The Story of Petersham, published in 1948 boasted that Petersham Town Hall's main auditorium featured a specially constructed dance floor with polished maple on the lower panels of the walls.

It was also the first metropolitan town hall in Australia to install a public address system.

With the construction of the administration building in 1974, Marrickville Council relocated most of its indoor operations across the road. Marrickville Council's Archives operates in the former Council Chambers on the first floor of the Town Hall.
