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.

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.

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.
