Significant war trophies on show in front of the Victoria Barracks are two muzzle-loading guns captured from the Russians in 1854 during the Crimean War, and two German guns captured in World War I during 1918, one taken on the Western Front, the other in Palestine.

Part 5

Melbourne Exhibition Centre





One must also add that The Melbourne Exhibition Centre is fondly called ‘Jeff’s Shed’ as well, due to being one of Jeff Kennett’s pet projects when he was premier of the state.

Nice photos of the Barracks. Apparently every time the fire balls go off at Crown they use $3,000 worth of gas and I think that was per ball of fire. Not too sure though..

Waking down Victoria Street, one finds him or herself coming across the Carlton Gardens, featuring The Royal Exhibition Building (REB)....











....And the Melbourne Museum.

A little further up Victoria Street one finds The Eastern Hill Fire Station (Melbourne Fire Museum).

Just around the corner on Gisborne Street, you find the mighty St. Patrick's Cathedral.
