Melbourne Official Visitor Guide - - Arts & Culture -

Find out part of what makes Mel­bourne the world’s most live­able city by ob­serv­ing the mag­nif­i­cent ar­chi­tec­ture dat­ing from the 1850s to the present day.

01 Manch­ester Unity Build­ing

Look up on Swanston Street to see the im­pres­sive fa­cade of this 1932 struc­ture, which com­bines el­e­ments of Gothic and

Art Deco ar­chi­tec­ture. At the time of its construction, it was con­sid­ered to be the most tech­no­log­i­cally ad­vanced build­ing in the city. Tours run ev­ery month.


02 Aus­tralian Cen­tre for Con­tem­po­rary Art

As many peo­ple visit ACCA to ad­mire its rusted steel fa­cade — cre­ated by lo­cal firm Wood Marsh in 2002 — as to view the ex­tra­or­di­nary large-scale in­stal­la­tions inside. The build­ing it­self ref­er­ences the sheds, ware­houses and foundries that orig­i­nally oc­cu­pied the site.


03 MelTours’ Ar­chi­tec­ture Tour of Mel­bourne

For two hours you’ll be guided around Mel­bourne to dis­cover the finest build­ings and learn about the ar­chi­tects who cre­ated them.
