While not the craziness of a SEAsian market, this place is plenty fun to visit. Beneath an amazing array of skyscrapers, this market is easy to reach from the city (we trammed up and walked back) and filled with food, meats and tourist stuff. We...More

Yes, this is still a great tourist attraction in Melbourne and this is attested by the many people who visit to look, or shop for fish, meat, vegetables, fruit and deli items. Realistically as a shopping destination I do not believe the prices are "market"...More

The market was huge with a variety of stalls but many seemed to cater to tourists more than to locals. Great place to visit for a variety of goods and produce, food and souvenirs, but on the whole, an average experience.

Central Business District
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
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
