This is yet another historical shopping centre in Melbourne’s central business district. During its early days, in the late eighteenth century and the early nineteenth century, the block was notorious for its drug and prostitution rings. Today however, it’s a lovely block filled with quaint little boutiques and shops. It lights up wonderfully at Christmas. Visitors say that the best way to get through the arcade is a little bit every day: walk in, shop, eat, repeat tomorrow with different shops an different restaurants. Make sure to check out the pretty mosaic tiling and the Hopetoun Tea Rooms, the chocolates and the coffee. It’s pure Victorian delight. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Melbourne Itinerary 6 Days.
