“The Traffic”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

The traffic along Swan street is always a pain. Very slow and parking can be difficult, there is always construction going on somewhere along it.
The shops are good, plenty of foodie places and it crosses over Church street wherw you will find lots of other good shops.

“Great street!”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

My favorite street in Richmond. Gets a little dodgy late at night but safe during the day. Good access to the train station.

“Amazing Atmosphere when the Footy Fans are About”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

I just loved the quaintness of all the old pubs and restaurants that are along the street. We went on Saturday when the Richmond Tigers were playing Geelong at the MCG, and every pub and restaurant along the street was packed! The trams, railroads and location next to Melbourne's major sporting complexes make this place an awesome hang out for pre-game revellers.

An endless array of bars, cafes and restaurants make this strip a big hit. Excellent train and transport options. Very good people watching opportunities abound. Highly recommended

“Shopping and food for serious people.”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Chapel St, Prahran is the young hip crowd, but Swan St, you get the serious foodies who loves the miriad of Vietnamese Cafes and Restaraunts, and this is only in between speed shopping along the many shops and factory outlets in Richmond on and around Swan St. You like shop...you go Swan St. OK? ;-)
