The Spanish Mission style was typically a style that emerged in California during the Interwar years.

Examples of this style are rare in Melbourne, however has perhaps three of the most spectacular building of the style in the country - the Moorish State Theatre on Flinders Street and the sea baths and Palais Theatre in St Kilda.
