What people are saying:

Most of the time, it is free and open. The traffic is convenient in all directions on the edge of City. The content of the exhibition changes with the time, but the royal style and unique charm remain unchanged.

Additional Information

Introduction

The Royal Exhibition Building, the only Australian architecture listed on the United Nations World Heritage, was designed for international exhibitions held in Melbourne from 1880 to 1888. The building, with its overall Byzantine style, incorporates Italian Renaissance architectural elements. This important cultural landmark survived in the 1960s, when many people suggested it be dismantled because of years of erosion, and later voted down the proposal by the margin of one vote.
