Old Treasury BuildingLarge Image 1

Description

Designed by 19-year-old architect JJ Clark, the Old Treasury Building was built to house the gold bullion discovered during Victoria’s 1850s gold rush.

The colony’s leaders worked from offices in the grand palazzo-style building until the 1870s, and the Old Treasury now houses a collection of rare historic documents from Public Record Office Victoria, highlighting key moments from Victoria’s history.

A regular calendar of events and displays reflecting Melbourne’s history are held at the Old Treasury Building, including permanent and temporary exhibitions. Visit the vaults to see where the gold bullion was stored, and learn more about the gold era in the Built on Gold exhibition.
