We wandered and explored the shops for a few hours.... some great stores and a beautiful building. We enjoyed just wandering and looking around. The kids had some food in the food court, we grabbed some groceries to take back to our apartment.

The old GPO building is stunning and right in Melbourne's heart. The building is now a shopping centre but upon entering and when walking around the perimeter there are some photographs and plaques showing the building in former times. Shopping aside, I really love this...More

Worthy of a visit if only for the architecture and atmosphere of Burke Street Mall. Sit at the cafes which are on the Elizabeth St. side with a coffee and people watch whilst listening to the music or wander around and look at shops. There's...More

I love the colonnade that surrounds the building on its street frontages. It was a favourite meeting place for youth in the 1960s. The main postal hall from the old Post Office is now a clothing store, but you can still see much of the...More

THe GPO Shopping complex (that used to be the old post office), now houses H & M, Federal Coffee Palace and a few other small restaurants. The restaurants are good. And the toilets are excellent, and well hidden and very clean.

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

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
