What travelers say:

Interesting venue for various performances/conferences throughout the year. We participated in the'Animaga' with many years of experience in August and the vegetarian market in 2019. This is a comfortable place suitable for the times: good facilities and climate, but when more than 3000 people show up, the noise makes it difficult to talk with others due to the sound barrier created in the space. Stylish, quirky, well-maintained venue.

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.
