Attractions near the Hotel Grand Chancellor

Local history and culture

From the days of the gold rush to the present, Chinese people have played an integral part in Australia’s cultural history. Take a fascinating look at the development of Melbourne’s Chinese community at The Museum of Chinese Australian History, a short distance from the hotel. Compact, but spanning five floors, the museum houses several permanent exhibitions, including one entitled ‘Melbourne’s Dragons’, which features the magnificent Millennium Dragon – the largest processional dragon in the world.

Chinatown’s wonderful array of restaurants and authentic cuisine are right outside, ready to entice you with incredible flavours and a lively, bustling atmosphere.

Take in a museum

Enjoy a rich and rewarding historical experience of life in Victoria at the Melbourne Museum, a short tram ride away from the hotel. See as much as you can, including the Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre and the living rainforest, or simply enjoy some quiet contemplation in one of the building’s many tranquil areas. Children are invariably impressed by the complete skeleton of a blue whale – the world’s largest mammal.

Opposite the museum in Carlton Gardens, join a guided tour of the Royal Exhibition Building, the first building in Australia to achieve World Heritage listing. Constructed in 1879, the building’s architecture is a learning experience in itself and inside you’ll find more about this beautiful structure’s history, as well as an ever-changing calendar of exhibitions.
