Overview

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.

An amazing history. Beautiful breezeway, lots of tables to enjoy a cup of coffee, and or lunch. The architecture is beautiful, the atmosphere so peaceful, yet it's right on the Main Street. Another wonderful building in Charters Towers.

The old arcade was the stock exchange and in its tine did 2 calls a day and I believe this has never been done at any other exchange, 3rd exchange in Australia or was it number 4?

Sat in the stock exchange arcade to eat lunch. It was very relaxing. Afterwards we looked about and read the history of the area. It is amazing to see it restored

Well restored building housing a somewhat unique history in that it was in fact a Stock Exchange in days of yore when Charters Towers was called "The World" Actual Stock Trading took place here and one can almost hear the clamour and dealings going on
