At the top, eastern end of Collins Street in the Melbourne CBD, the Old Treasury Building is widely regarded as one of the finest 19th century buildings in Australia. The Old Treasury building was designed by nineteen-year-old architect J.J. Clark and built between 1858 and 1862. The building is now is now a museum of Melbourne history. Notorious Bushranger Ned Kelly's 'Euroa letter' or 'Cameron letter' is on display. The museum hosts the original gold vaults where gold bullion was stored during the gold rush era, as well as rare and historic documents from Public Record Office Victoria highlighting key moments from Victoria’s history.
The Old Treasury Building also houses the Victorian Marriage Registry that "caters to a wide range of cultures, preferences and budgets".
