Queen Victoria Market is one of Melbourne's great landmarks, occupying seven hectares in the heart of the city. Constructed in stages from the 1860's and officially opened on 20 March 1878.
It is the largest open-air market in Australia and the most intact of Melbourne's Victoria - era markets still operating. The site is on the land of the Kulin Nations and is also significant as Market was recognised by the National Trust in 1970, and in 1989 it was listed on the Victorian Heritage Register.
