North of Victoria Parade this place is full of diversity, colour and vibrancy. Plenty of unique shopping and cafes. It makes for a pleasant morning or afternoon exploration with plenty of interest at night. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

This street offers restaurants, cafes and some discount outlet shops, mainly sporting and outdoor stores, plus Gloweave shirts! If you out that way go! Also lots of old houses and narrow streets around the area and just a good Melbourne experience.

Smith street is changing. It used to be THE place to go for shopping at discount outlets, but for whatever reason, the offerings have dropped from times gone by. Maybe due to the proliferation of DFO'S? No matter, you can still get some good bargains,...More

Collingwood has long been on my favourite suburb lists and Smith st is its heart. This icon of LGBTI and inner urban Melbourne is equally as assured at night as it is in the day. Whether it's good or drinks, whether it's shopping or style,...More
