Collins Street is a long street running through the main shopping area of Melbourne CBD uphill to the expensive Paris end up near the Sofitel Hotel. Think Versace, Hermes, Paspaley Pearls etc to get a feel for some of the shops. Well worth a walk,...More

I love walking down Collins Street, right from the Paris end to the new parts in the Docklands. The old and new architectures are a wonderful blend, people are also very friendly - great place Melbourne.

If you like stores, this is for you. It has the most fancy stores from all around the world. It's also at the center so it gets a bit crowded, specially at rush hour. Nice place to take a walk and feel the city vibe.

Shopping, dining, and a nice streetscape. Public transit is easy with the phone application. Safe and friendly, fun to explore...don’t forget the side alleys.

Pedestrian friendly street with lots going on. Good buskers - often outside the old post office building (H&M's) - sit on the steps and listen for a while. Great shopping with a wide variety of shops and eateries.

I like a good stroll down Collins Street. Lots to see- beautiful theatres, lovely buildings, shops, street culture, and being Melbourne- of course there is food and good coffee in abundance. Easily accessible on trams or on foot.

We stayed at the Grand Hyatt on Collins Street for the Grand Final weekend. Very handy to walk to the MCG, or catch a tram just outside the door. There's some expensive shopping if you're into that, lots of restaurants and bars very close buy,...More

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
