There are mainly 4 sections. Seafood/Meat, delicatessen (processed meat and cheese), Vegetables, and Souvenirs. Fresh juice shop in delicatessen area was delicious. I tried Kangaroo... More

Fresh seafood and oyster is a must try. Great place to buy some fruits. Also, cheapest place to get some nuts. Some food stall around and hot chocolate at Koko Black is must try. Boring place to shop as most shops selling similar items.

We used the local tram service to get to the Queen Victoria Market, and it was extremely simple to get there. We spent several hours walking among the stalls, both inside and outside, and ended up having an affordable and delicious seafood lunch at one of the cafes in the food court. We had a memorable time, and while it's... More

This was the second time my wife and I have been. It was first time for the kids. We had a marvellous time exploring the sights and smells of the whole place. So vibrant and the different food on sale were amazing! We bought some Greek hummus eggplant dip for afternoon tea which we ate again for breakfast! The flowers... More

They sell various food over there and they are cheap! My friend got a tray of 6 raw oysters at only AUD$8.50! A few coffee places for you to choose to just sit and people-watch. There is a shop that sells customised genuine leather belts at only AUD$20! Walk around and you may just find more surprises along the way.

Blocks and blocks of vendors selling their wares. Bought many souvenirs for people back home at lower discounted prices than other places. Also ate lunch there as well at one of the small shops. Bring your walking shoes for sure.

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.
