Melbourne's Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens are important as a rare surviving example of venues constructed as part of the late 19th-century world exhibition movement. This was the reason for their addition to the World Heritage List in July 2004. They were also the venue for the opening of the first Australian Federal Parliament. Wander through the leafy grounds of the Carlton Gardens, attend an exhibition or join a guided tour to see the Exhibition Building located on the edge of the Melbourne CBD.
The Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens were included in the National Heritage List on 20 July 2004 and inscribed on the World Heritage List at the same time.
