Victoria’s Trades Hall, rising grandly from the northern edge of the Melbourne CBD, is a national treasure and a symbol of the aspirations of the Australian people. For over 150 years the Trades Hall building has given form to dreams of a better life for working people and their families. It is the birthplace of organised labour in Australia, and the campaign headquarters of the world's first 8 hour day, the campaign against conscription in WWI, the "Green Bans" of the 1970s, the struggle for equal pay, and the Marriage Equality "YES!" campaign.
Walk in the footsteps of John Curtin, Zelda D'Aprano, Bob Hawke and other giants of labour history, and be inspired by the stories of our movement.
Join another living treasure, Antony Moore, on a colourful tour of this magnificent building.
