Fed Square May claim to be the heart of Melbourne, but locals know that the Bourke Street Mall really is.
Great atmosphere with buskers always performing.
Best to visit at Xmas time to see the Myers window.
Easy to get too via Tram.
Always seems to be the centre of Melbourne.
A busy place with the trams running down the centre and the big (and small) retailers on either side.
Buskers abound adding to the lively ambiance .
Shop or just sit and watch.

The Mall runs between Elizabeth and Swanston Streets and is flanked on either side by major department stores (Myers and David Jones) as well as other major retail shops such as Zara, H & M etc. A number of very interesting arcades also run off...More
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.
