My doctor claims it's always good to engage in activity that leaves me 'huffing and puffing.' So get those walking shoes on. Start at The Block Arcade near the corner of Collins and Elizabeth Streets - a must-see. Then slowly wind your way east, preferably...More

A five o'clock start to the morning is a struggle at the best of times; a laborious hurdle that my brain doth protest with contradictorily foggy vigour. Throw in the prospect of exercise and it’s even less appealing. Yet there I was, rejecting sleep’s powerful...More

Years ago the central business district had all the shops. In years gone by Collins Street had the high end. Then arcades opened up and the city became a shell. With the rise of Asian students coming to Melbourne the city rose again and became...More

This street runs from near where I work at Docklands to the "Paris" end of Collins Street. This end is known as such due to the many heritage buildings, high-end stores , and the location of many alfresco cafes in the city. Trams service this...More

We stayed at the Winston Apartments on Collins Street such a great location to get on and off the trams to get to other areas around the CBD.

This is a main shopping street, including Little Collins too, in the CBD. So you're going to cross it or walk it one way or the other as you explore central Melbourne. Fun to window shop at least and as I recall free trams.

I was very please to see that so much of the original streetscape of the elegant Collins Street Melbourne has been preserved where possible. This street still represents as a lovely stroll through Melbourne on a weekend.

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
