Customs House is a building located on Queen Street by the Brisbane River in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. It was originally used for the collection of customs duty and was both completed and opened in 1889, when Queensland was a British colony.


The Long Room encompasses two levels and features fluted Corinthian pilasters under a striking a copper-sheathed dome roof. The materials used in the construction of the building included local sandstone and bricks from Petrie’s Oriel Road brickworks in Clayfield. Local cedar, beech, pine and ironbark were used in the furniture and timber work. Fireplaces were built from Italian marble.
