Point of Interest Details

Facing south down the once elegant Collins Street, the Old Treasury Building was the first major government office built in Melbourne after the gold rushes. Recognised as one of the most significant 19th-century buildings in Australia, the design drew on the palazzo form popular at that time and was influenced by C.R. Cockerell’s Ashmolean Museum at Oxford. Both Parliament House and the Old Treasury Building have bluestone foundations.
