Overview
More
Built to a design by Mark Cooper Day as the Royal Arcade, the Charters Towers Stock Exchange operated here from 1890 until 1916. The building houses many local Charters Towers businesses and the National Trust of Queensland Don Roderick Art Gallery. A rare example of an arcade in Queensland, one with architecture adapted to climate and well-liked for its scale and barrel-vault entrance, the Stock Exchange Arcade is indicative of the rise and fall of fortune on the nineteenth century goldfield.

For the aussie history of it, you must visit. Be gtateful it was saved in the 1960's. Our favourite was the cite interesting book shop with very firendly service. Was also part of the ghost tour we went on.

Breakfast was expensive for the quality and poor service from a teenage waiter. We found this place to be quite run down and not exactly clean. Looked nice in the photos but isn't exactly what it seems. The outdoor eating area was nice though

From the original iron fretwork, stained glass, imposing metal gates, beautiful tiles, high closed in ceilings - what's not to love. The fact there is a gift shop, second hand book shop and a cafe in the arcade are real bonuses!

Beautiful iconic building with many historic features. There are a few shops in the arcade with a very good cafe.

Interesting place to soak up past history but does not have many shops to attract. Has a great little bookshop. Spent some time in there talking to a very knowledgeable local. Got lots of info on where to get good food and where to visit

You have to visit the stock exchange arcade - a slice of the gold minig heritage of Charters Towers. The tourist office is located here. There is a small community museum at the back.
