The original Eureka Centre was built in 1998 to tell the story of the Eureka rebellion of 1854. An extensive demolition, extension, and retrofit allowed for a new method to tell the story of the birth of democracy in Australia.
A new entrance, exhibition hall, cafe area, auditorium and lecture room were constructed. The build also included a new fire- and security-isolated room to house and protect the famous Eureka Flag.
As part of the extensive reshaping of the surrounding landscaping, the existing iconic flag pole was dismantled, cut down and re-erected.
