Sure, you're well familiar with the State Library of Victoria's impressive facade, rising majestically over Swanston Street, but how often do you venture inside? There's enough within the building to keep you entertained for hours. Start with the six-storey reading room, devouring pages and exploring the shelves beneath the stunning, domed ceiling. After that, take in one of the library's thought-provoking free exhibitions, currently covering everything from the library's rarest and most beautiful tomes, to Angel Lynkushka's portrait series of Gippsland Aboriginal Elders, artists and leaders.
