    If you can, visit after you've visited most of the CBD, as it'll be extra interesting to see how Melbourne was in the past compared to today

    $26.6m worth of gold bars on display in the gold vaults which was only 0.08% of the total mining in year 1850. So Victoria was literally Built on Gold !

    If you have any interest in Melbourne's history, check this out. It's very accessible (historically not physically) and it's free - win win! The volunteers were also knowledgeable and friendly.

    Did you know that the magnificent @OldTreasuryMelb Building was designed by architect JJ Clark when he was only nineteen years old? #LoveOHM

    Get spooked! Some say the building is haunted by a public servant or a caretaker who never left. Decide for yourself during Open House 10am to 4pm - Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 July 2012 #OHM2012
