Royal Exhibition Building Melbourne

Hi there ... The Royal Exhibition Building is a World Heritage Site-listed building in Melbourne, Australia, completed in 1880. It is located at 9 Nicholson Street in the Carlton Gardens, flanked by Victoria, Nicholson, Carlton and Rathdowne Streets, at the north-eastern edge of the central business district. It was built to host the Melbourne International Exhibition in 1880-1881 and later hosted the opening of the first Parliament of Australia in 1901. Throughout the 20th century smaller sections and wings of the building were subject to demolition and fire, however the main building, known as the Great Hall, survived. – Courtesy of Wikipedia.


  1. Love this building Joe and your capture of it. Thanks also for your comments on my blog. Much appreciated especially as I enjoy your work and learn heaps from it. Many thanks. Your posts over the last few days have been so contrasting and just fabulous. Congrats and once again thanks for your feedback.

  2. What an interesting building with this strong façade. Do you know the architectural style? I feel that it is a mixture of several, quite well combined.


  3. Gosh I love what you've done with this image Joe, beautifully presented. Love the big clumps of Bird of Paradise on each side of the fountain. Totally gorgeous shot.
