The British Empire Exhibition was held at Wembley Park, Middlesex [UK], where a purpose built “great national sports ground” was created. This later became Wembley Stadium. The Australian pavilion included stands for agriculture, dairy, fisheries, forestry, manufactures, minerals and pastoral, as well as “a 16-foot diameter ball of Australian wool.” Ref: Official catalogue held in NLA; Wiki.
