Old Treasury Building Tours

Located at the top of Collins Street’s ‘Paris End’, the Old Treasury Building is one of the finest remaining examples of gold rush architecture. Built to store the gold arriving in Melbourne from the gold fields of central Victoria, this stunning building now hosts a museum detailing the stories of Melbourne’s history.

On your tour, an expert guide will take you from the basement gold vaults, to the Executive Council Chamber, in continuous use by the Governor of Victoria since 1862. Uncover the history of Melbourne, from a tiny village in 1835 to the period when Melbourne was the national capital of Australia.

This journey is told through magnificent panoramic photographs, paintings and original documents from the State Archives. This 1 hour tour will showcase the best history Melbourne has to offer, and bring its stories to life!
