About The Royal Exhibition Building

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.
