Despite its age and grandeur of this World Heritage site, the Royal Exhibition Building remains in magnificent condition and continues to host a busy schedule of events and exhibitions each year. Key events include the Melbourne International Garden and Flower Show every April, the Australasian Quilt Convention, the Australian Antiques and Art Dealers event, the Australian Wedding and Honeymoon Expo and the Love Vintage Clothing Show.
The Royal Exhibition Building has hosted a share of historical moments as well, such as the first Commonwealth Parliament of Australia in 1901, and is now under the management of Museums Victoria.
Visitors can attend an exhibition or take a one hour tour of the building and surrounding gardens.
Plan your visit by checking The Royal Exhibition Building website for even schedules and tour times. Tours cost $5 for adults and $3.50 for concession holders.
The Exhibition Building is close to Brunswick Street in Fitzroy, which is an ideal place to wander and seek a drink and a snack after your Exhibition Building experience.
