Notable features

These offices are one of Melbournes exceptional nineteenth century buildings. They are the centrepiece of the citys finest streetscapes and form an ideal backdrop to the Treasury Gardens. Austere in plan and composition, their excellence stems from the fine quality of the beautifully proportioned mouldings which articulate the whole complex. The grandeur of the main entrance, with its Doric loggia surmounted by the Royal Arms, is of special merit.
