Walked through this arcade a few times in our Melbourne travels. Great piece of history and excellent shops. Try out the Hopetoun tea rooms. A must visit.

my husband I when we visit love to walk through the arcades of melbourne, looking at all the unique little shops that have lovely wares, of which are all reasonably priced, do your self a favour and go for a stroll through the arcades and even stop and grab a cuppa and something to eat.

This is a famous and classic nook of Melbourne City. Walk down the café society alley way and discover boutique shops, jewelry, chocolate and gifts. Mosaic floors are stunning.

We enjoyed wandering through this old arcade. The Hopetown tearooms look amazing although we didn't eat there. The mosaic floor is lovely and there is also a fabulous chocolate shop worth viewing.

Interesting mix of shops. I bought a piece of amber jewelry at the Babushka shop. Hot chocolate and individual chocilates at Chocolait were the best we found in Melbourne.
