Melbourne’s Great Victorian Architecture
Melbourne is famous for its Victorian architecture. The city experienced a land boom right at the peak of the High Victorian era (in the late 1880s), which meant a lot of tall Victorian buildings were constructed in Melbourne during this time.
Although many of the city’s Victorian era buildings were demolished in the 1950-60s, there are numerous surviving examples of beautiful Victorian architecture still in Melbourne.
Below are twelve of Melbourne’s finest.

Melbourne GPO, 1859
Hotel Windsor, 1884
