Self-Guided Heritage Trail

Dairy Produce Hall c1930

In its 140 years, Queen Victoria Market has had a colourful and sometimes controversial history. During that time, the site has been a cemetery, a livestock market and a wholesale fruit and vegetable market. Each of these operations has its own history and an element of controversy. Students can explore the historic landmarks and architectural features at their own pace when they take our Self-guided Heritage Trail.

Download the Self-guided Heritage Trail map or pop into our Visitor Hub and pick one up.
