Royal Exhibition Building

Corner Nicholson Street and Victoria Parade, Carlton, Victoria, 3053

North of the city centre, the majestic Royal Exhibition Building is surrounded by Carlton Gardens.

The building is one of the world's oldest remaining exhibition pavilions and was originally built for the Great Exhibition of 1880. Later it housed the first Commonwealth Parliament from 1901, and was the first building in Australia to achieve a World Heritage listing in 2004.

With a meticulously restored interior, expansive galleries and soaring dome, the Royal Exhibition Building's Great Hall continues to be an impressive setting for trade shows, fairs, cultural and community events. The International Flower and Garden Show are held here annually.

Tours of the Royal Exhibition Building depart from Melbourne Museum. Contact Melbourne Museum for further details on 13 11 02.
