Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens Hochgurtel Fountain


Situated in the center of Carlton Gardens and completed in 1880, the Royal Exhibition Building played host to the Melbourne International Exhibition, the Centennial International Exhibition of 1888, as well as the opening of Federal Parliament in 1901. The wealth, energy and optimism of gold rush-era Victoria is reflected in the grand scale and classical design of this exhibition pavilion. It was the first building in Australia to be awarded UNESCO World Heritage status. I added filters to the photo for a painterly look.

Art prints are available on Fine Art America.

The non-painterly version of the image is also available for royalty-free licensing on Beverly Claire Stock Images. There are many other similar versions such as this cloudy one and this blue sky one.
