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.

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!

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.

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.
