Overview

Architecture & design

See the depth and diversity of Victoria's cultural heritage reflected in its striking architectural treasures. From heritage buildings and stark mid-century architecture to bold contemporary designs, Melbourne and Victoria boast cityscapes and main streets highlighted by the contrast of old and new.

City icons

Start your city wanderings at Federation Square, with its signature shard-like buildings, a world away from the Moorish Revival-exteriors of the nearby Forum Theatre. Cross the Yarra to check out the futuristic shapes of the Arts Centre's beacon-like spire and Eureka Tower. Keen on art deco? Head across the Manchester Unity Building on Collins Street and Cathedral Arcade, located on the corner of Flinders Lane's and Swanston Streets.

For a look inside some of the city's favourite buildings, visit during Open House in July for tours of over 100 buildings around the city. 

Regional treasures

See the architectural evidence of Victoria's gold rush and pioneer history in towns and villages across the region, from Bendigo and Castlemaine to Ballarat and Mildura. Take yourself on a self-guided walking tour down main street, check out historical landmarks and time your visit for the Ballarat Heritage Weekend – a the celebration of the town's past.
