  • I took a tour of the building. The history is very interesting and the building itself has been refurbished recently to look like it did originally. First escalator in southern hemisphere. Went to the top and it is a great view and amazing tower. The cafe on ground floor is so fancy and serves a good coffee and cheese tasting paired with wine.
  • We visited the Manchester Building today and joined the early 0830h tour. It was fantastic and well worth a visit. As a local Melbourne resident, it was interesting to learn the history of the building. Excellent work by the dental business who have seemingly been responsible for its refurbishment and promotion. Food was great, tour guide was amazing, and the building is more magnificent inside then out. Check it out.
