Melbourne’s CBD is home to some of Australia’s prime retail strips, shopping centres and boutique lined laneways. With everything from the famous luxury brands located along iconic Collins St to bustling Bourke St Mall, Melbourne Central and QV, Melbourne city shopping is famous for the variety.
New additions to the Melbourne shopping landcape are St Collins Lane and Emporium Melbourne, which have shops which will please people with all budgets. If you are looking for luxury, visit the parliament end of Collins street with retailers such as Chanel, Tiffany and Co and Prada having their flagship stores in those locations. Our department stores Myer and David Jones occupy much of Bourke street with their multi-level offerings, which will suit people with any budget.
The many hidden boutiques in Melbourne’s famous cobblestone laneways give Melbourne the edge on style and fashion. Local designers rub shoulders with popular international brands making the city’s CBD one of the best retail locations in Australia.
To make the most of your shopping experience, wander the city by foot. If the plan is to shop until you drop, Melbourne’s trams make the CBD easy to navigate and get around without feeling exhausted by the end of your shopping spree. As most of the Melbourne city shops are in the Free Tram Zone, simply catch one to where you would like to go.
