Unusual Local Feature

Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens

This World Heritage Site was designed for international exhibitions of 1880 and 1888 in Melbourne. The building and grounds combine elements from the Byzantine, Romanesque, Lombardic and Italian Renaissance styles. The Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens are a surviving manifestation of the international exhibition movement which blossomed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This had a global influence, showcasing technological innovation and change, and helping to promote a industrialization and the international exchange of knowledge and ideas. Even the Land Down Under was doing creative things with design and engineering.
Global City
Melbourne is one of Australia’s two major cities (in addition to Sydney). It is sometimes called the cultural capital of Australia, with its many art galleries, film festivals, orchestras, choral and opera productions, and vibrant live music scene. It also has a strong food, wine and coffee culture. Perhaps the defining center of Melbourne is the Flinders Street Railway Station -- a colonial-era railway station at the junction of Flinders Street and Swanston Street.
