The Royal Exhibition Building is one of the world's oldest remaining exhibition pavilions. On 1 July 2004, it became the first building in Australia to achieve a World Heritage listing. Located in Carlton Gardens, the pavilion was originally...more

We visit here offen for special events.
Love going to Dog lovers show and Melbourne flower and garden show.
Always easy to get to and very clean and tidy.
All events are very well run.Great for Melbourne
With its domed roof and cruciform layout all in sandy coloured stone this royalty approved exhibition hall is well worth a look , the gardens are lovely and being next door to the super modern museum it provides a great contrast.
This nice looking building was designed in 1879 and is next to the Melbourne Museum. It was not open when we visited so only saw it from the outside. Is in Carlton Gardens which is a very nice place to walk.
The building and its surrounding are well worth a visit - particularly in the warmer weather when you can sit in the grounds and watch the world go by. The Melbourne Museum is right next door to it and both are easily accessible from Parliament...More
This building is magnificent and very historically important. Before Canberra was built, the First Federal Parliament was opened here. I think people forget that the reason this state is called “Victoria” is because of Queen Victoria. Lord Melbourne was one of her Prime Ministers. If...More
This is a magnificent looking building, which reminded us of the amazing Parliament building in Budapest.
The building is surrounded by the beautiful Carlton gardens with greens, ponds and a gorgeous fountain.
During our visit, they were preparing the building for the Oktoberfest celebrations, so...More

Well done on a well planned itinerary. You have obviously put a lot of time and effort into it - even right down to where you are going to eat desert! At first glance. I can't see too many (actually none) problems with it. Just one minor point though. The free city circle tram does not pass Queen Victoria market, but the free city circle bus does.

Hello everyone! I'm planning a rather spontaneous trip to Australia and New Zealand with the wife. This has been a desired trip for a while, but just poorly planned for :\ It will be just the wife and myself (both in early 30's). This will be both of our FIRST international trip as adults. I went to China when I was about 6-7years old, and have very vague memories. My wife has barely been outside our state of California, USA :D We're planning for mid-March to make the trek across the...More

Honestly I would spend the two weeks in one country or the other not try and do two countries in the time you have. In Australia its often suggested visiting no more than three destinations in a two week time frame. You are likely to get more info about NZ by posting questions on that forum. Good luck with this.
