In most great cities there is one building that epitomises its spirit and history. It may be a cathedral, a place, a town hall or a parliament. In Melbourne it is undoubtedly the Royal Exhibition Building.

This beautifully illustrated guidebook is an introduction to the rich history of the Royal Exhibition Building and includes vivid descriptions of the great exhibitions and other fascinating events that took place within its walls. The building’s significance has been recognised by its inclusion on UNESCO’S World Heritage List.
