Old Treasury Building


The Old Treasury Building is a unique resource for students and teachers. A magnificent gold rush building, it reflects the growth of ‘Marvellous Melbourne’ and changing life in the city. From the basement vaults where gold was stored in the 1860s, to the elegant Executive Council Chamber, still used regularly by the Governor of Victoria, students experience one of Australia’s most beautiful and historic buildings. Programs include the story of gold, the growth of democracy, early Melbourne, life in the city and the urban environment.
