Trades Hall history tour

musicians_in_front_of_trades_hall_c.1920_-_no_fence.jpgFor over 150 years, Victoria's Trades Hall has given form to dreams of a better life for working people and their families. It is not only the birthplace of organised labour in Australia, but also of Victorian Labor and the Australian Council of Trade Unions. After the successful Eight Hour Day campaign of 1856, it was decided that a 'People's Palace' should be built as a monument to this victory and also as a forum for all union concerns. 

Come on a guided tour of your Hall and hear some of the stories from our history!

This tour is being run in addition to our sold out tours for Open House weekend. This tour is for union members and their families.
