Located on either side of the Royal Exhibition Building, from Rathdowne and Nicholson Streets respectively, the Eastern and Western Forecourts are landscaped spaces adjoin Carlton Gardens, Museum Plaza and Southern Drive.
From the light and breezy mezzanine Gallery Level, you can look down over the balcony and gaze across the floor or up towards the starry sky of the Dome with its exquisitely painted Renaissance-like murals beneath.
The ground floor of the Royal Exhibition Building is immediately impressive. No matter which triumphal portico you enter, as soon as you look up you’ll be struck by the breathtaking ceilings.
Museum Plaza most often used as public event space or for outdoor exhibitions, this immense area is an exciting platform for any number of events – the possibilities are endless!
Southern Drive is bordered by perfectly landscaped garden beds and separates the Royal Exhibition Building from the southern end of the Carlton Gardens
We are always excited to welcome guests to the heritage-listed Pumping Station – its impressive industrial architecture and unique history always makes for a memorable occasion.
