Fun Street

All the streets are interesting to explore, Collins has more designer high end shops. Little Collins is more quaint. Lots to see, fun cafes. I find the shops on Collins expensive.

I used Collins Street mostly to get form one place to the other, and it's a nic way to do so, as there are some nice old stone buidlings. On the other hand it's not a major sight.

Had worked down Bourke and Swanston streets and seen some less than attractive parts of Melbourne and then turned into Collins Street and the difference was marked - a street of quality and diversity - some wonderful trees flanking superb architecture and buildings with some of the best retailing in Melbourne

Collins Street has high end shops, banks and cafes to explore and enjoy. A tree lined street which has tram access if you find the Spring St end to difficult to climb.

Another great place to see the old and stunning architecture in and around Melbourne. its really grand and very photogenic. There are plenty of shops but the area seems quieter than many of the larger malls etc. We were there throughout Christmas and the lights down here were great!

You never tire of looking at the buildings from the past, these have been wonderfully restored to their former glory.

For some reason Collins Street is one of the more relaxed streets in the CBD. It could be the tree canopy above or it could be the wide sidewalks and various nooks and crannies you can explore along the way such as the Block Arcade and Place cafes. Well worth a look if you want to catch your breath from... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
