Right wing extremist Phillip Galea has been found guilty of plotting terrorist attacks on Victorian Trades Hall and other "leftist" centres in Melbourne three years ago.

He was charged with "acts in preparation for, or planning a terrorist act" and attempting to make a document likely to facilitate a terrorist act.

During the trial, prosecutors said Galea, 35, had maps and photos of the targeted locations and was making a "Patriot's Cookbook" to recruit others to take up violent acts against Muslims and leftists.

After a trial lasting more than seven weeks, the jury took just over two days to return its verdict.

More to come.
