The heart of Melbourne's fashion district, you can spend a day traversing the street bottom to top and back to bottom again. There's things for all tastes and it's well worth the time invested.

Chapel Street has so many venues for food and drink. A great place to get away for Italian, Polish, Asian, African and Australian foods, with a number of pubs and bars which get quite busy Friday and Saturday nights

Chapel Street is accessible by tram or train, and very close to the city. It has many different shops to offer - groceries, clothing, fresh fruit and veg from the market. Many cafes, restaurants and bars to choose from. Has multiple cinemas too. Highly recommend the visit when coming to Melbourne

This street is easily reached by tram from the CBD and is worth walking down if only to see the variety of shopping mainly clothing – it is also a long street. It also has a great range of coffee shops and eating places.
