Royal Exhibition Building reviews
I didn't see a way of entering the building just to visit, but the building and park beside it are gorgeous!

My first ever GABS and man...this venue was perfect. I loved being inside it, I love getting stuck in there with 4.5k people and most of all it was so spacious and the building itself has an aura I can't quite explain!
Historical and amazing artwork inside the building. I’ve been there for first time on Octoberfest in 2017, and accidentally had a job inside the building for six months. There are many beautiful histories about the victorian parliament which you could find them inside the building. It was good news when I saw they are repairing some old parts. Thanks 😊
