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.

Right on the Yarra Tram stops so convenient to get to it. There are lots of shops nearby in large buildings or Arcades and lane ways. Musicians are on many corners so the evening is crowded full of music and people going somewhere.

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
