Carlton Gardens – Home of Royal Exhibition Building and Melbourne Museum – Melbourne Walking Tour – Part 4


Even I stayed in Melbourne for quite sometime, the time was still not enough to see, to enjoy and to explore everything in the city. Because I traveled to Melbourne due to work assignment, my chances to go around this one of the famous city in the world was only during weekends as I have to work during weekdays. But I was thankful that I had given a chance to see this part of the world.

What to see around in Carlton Gardens? Carlton Gardens is itself a World Heritage site because of its scientific botanical significance. I got some photos of the garden together with Royal Exhibition Building. There are two significant tourist spot to enjoy around the place aside from the gardens. First is, Royal Exhibition Building and second is Melbourne Museum.

ROYAL EXHIBITION BUILDING

For Royal Exhibition Building, I tried many times to check the availability of the building for tourist and it wasn’t easy for me to schedule it since the building usually used for major events, if there are events that means the regular tour in the building is canceled.

When I found out the event about Motorclassica is happening that year in Royal Exhibition Building, I got interested because I will be able to see the old and classic cars or vehicles and the building itself. Therefore, I grabbed my chance and bought ticket to attend the event.

For this post I will not detail the Motorclassica events that I attended in the building, but to show couple of snapshots of the building which when I got a chance to walk around the area after visiting Melbourne Museum. The building was already closed since its past 5PM when I got out of the museum. What I can only do was to take photos of the building from the outside.

I read some historical facts of the building and learned that for the past century the building has been used for the same purpose which exhibition events. As per Wikipedia, the building was built to host Melbourne International Exhibition happened in 1880-1881 and hosted the first Parliament of Australia in 1901. The building is the first to awarded UNESCO World Heritage Status in Australia and now its one of the remaining 19th century exhibition building. A very interesting facts to treasure.

MELBOURNE MUSEUM

Next structure to appreciate for the people who like museums and discovering things is Melbourne Museum. To be honest, I spent more than half a day in the museum but still I haven’t had enough time to see all of it. Time flies so fast when I visited the museum. I wanted to read everything but I knew it’s really impossible. I am one of the last people whom left the museum. Here are few of the photos I got inside the museum which mostly reflects what was Melbourne city look like before.

Since I have few photos from the museum, I cannot elaborate so much about what I saw inside but one thing is for sure, it’s one of the best museum I had visited, I had been in the museum around 12PM and left past 5PM because the museum is closing, if not I definitely staying longer than that.
