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.

What a beautiful venue for an evening event. I was in town for a convention and had a night function. We arrived on dusk and was beautiful. Had great catering and good service.

We spent quite some time in the Stock Exchange Arcade. Apart from its obvious history, the arcade boasts a gift shop (connected from the Tourism Information Office), a fabulous second-hand bookshop, a cafe, a soaring ceiling with stunning interior and exterior spaces.

This is an beautifully restored building in the township of Charters Towers. It was certainly a place to admire the building and get an indication of what the building were like in the past. Well done Charters Towers for keeping the old buildings.

The building actually has quite a few shops to look at as well. It's a great old building to visit. Good local operator as well.
