Description :

Adelaide Jubilee International Exhibition celebrated 50 years of settlement in South Australia, and showcased produce and manufactured goods from Australian colonies and selected overseas countries. This 'golden jubilee' exhibition was held in the purpose built Exhibition Building, which featured a main hall and dome.

For ease of transport of exhibits, a branch line was built from Adelaide Railway Station to the Exhibition Building located further up North Terrace. Attended by more than 750,000 visitors, this exhibition also celebrated the jubilee of Queen Victoria's reign. The building was demolished in 1963.
