Quaint little arcade

Lovely little arcade with lots of specialty stores, if you follow it right around you'll come to a cute lanway with great cafes to take a break!!

A lovely find with a pleasant atmosphere, right off the main Burke St Mall, which is pretty bland on the whole. Good spot to get out of the bustle and explore some interesting little shops or have coffee. Visit Jasper Junior (a really good toyshop), which is way ahead of the offerings of big stores like David Jones or Myer... More

Royal Arcade is one of the most beautiful arcades in Melbourne. I love the tiles and the way the light reflects at the end when you walk through. There are a number of specialty shops and the fantastic Koko Black. Worth a visit if you are in the city.

My favourite shopping area in Bourke St Mall. All the boutiques are lovely, kids love the candy store and watching it be made.

This is a very upscale shopping district. It is fun to walk through if only to window shop. Try to be there around the top of the hour to see the clock strike.

The Royal Arcade is a gorgeous place to wander and shop, with some nice little shops. The beautiful building is the main attraction though!

A famous sight that is a must visit for any visitor of Melbourne. Cute boutique shops for all visitors: chocolates, toys, watches, and coffee. The architecture is beautiful to take in.

Glorious building, wonderful shops, the magnificence of Gog and Magog, two 7' figures who,strike the clock every 15 minutes. The lighting and floor are both wonderful. The Babushka shop sells beautiful authentic Russian Matryoshka sets with as few as 3 and as many as 8. There are gorgeous Jewellery shops and of course tea rooms.

This delightful arcade is a definite stop for anyone visiting Melbourne, from the classic black and white floor tiles to the domed ceiling and of course the magic of the clock. The stores within the arcade are very stylish, a few favourites are the Babushka Shop, Koko Black coffee shop with those delicious chocolates, and Jasper Junior always looking for... More
