The Royal Exhibition Building Guide: Spend Less, Do More

Welcome To The Royal Exhibition Building

9 Nicholson St, Carlton VIC 3053

The Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens were completed in 1880 for Melbourne’s first international exhibition. Today, the Royal Exhibition Building flourishes as one of the world's oldest exhibition pavilions, symbolising the great 19th-century international exhibition movement.

At 152 metres long and covering an area of 7,000 square metres, the Exhibition Building today constitutes only one-tenth of the entire exhibition space created in the 1880. The temporary annexes covering most of the northern gardens were built for the Melbourne Centennial International Exhibition. The Royal Exhibition Building continues to support a spectrum of trade shows, fairs, exhibitions, cultural and community events.

On 3 September 1901, the new Australian flag was first unveiled and flown on this building.
