The Moat

location marker 176 Little Lonsdale St (basement), Melbourne, Victoria, 3000.

With its unique courtyard and the hefty, time-worn bluestone walls that support this iconic 19th Century building, The Moat establishes an atmosphere unlike any other, paying homage to the nostalgia and intellect of the State Library Building whilst also catering to the whimsy and fantasy of the fiction housed above.
