Shopping centres & department stores

You can't beat Melbourne's major department stores and shopping centres for the biggest and best choice of designer fashion, cosmetics, shoes, accessories, men's and children's wear, homeware, technology and toys – all in one place.

Local favourites
Major department stores David Jones, and Myer have prospered in Melbourne's city centre for over 100 years. Enter between lovely window displays beneath art deco façades on the Bourke Street Mall. Shop a huge selection of clothing, accessories, electronics, kitchenware, gourmet provisions and linen for everything from bath to bedroom.

City shopping sensation
Melbourne's CBD is a shopper's delight, with an endless selection of retail hubs complemented by comfortable cafes and lunch break spots for a place to flop between the shop-to-shop.

Be dazzled by a dizzying array of flagship stores, exclusive boutiques and international fashion houses at the sleek and shiny Emporium Melbourne, which also redefines the notion of shopping centre foodcourt with a huge variety of sophisticated offerings. You'll find more than you bargain for when you venture between the multiple levels at Melbourne Central and in and out of the laneways at QV.

A new home for international names
An increasing number of international retail giants are making Melbourne their first port of call when entering the Australian market. Swedish behemoth H&M dominates the historic GPO building while rival Topshop set up shop on Chapel Street, Muji first called Chadstone home, while Japanese juggernaut Uniqlo made Emporium Melbourne its first Australian stop.

Further afield
Catch the free City Circle tram or Tourist Shuttle to Harbour Town Shopping Centre, to browse over 180 brand direct outlet and specialty stores.

At Melbourne's satellite shopping hubs Chadstone and Westfield Doncaster, major stores Myer and David Jones share an address with a huge collection of luxury emporiums, international design houses, boutiques, supermarkets, technology and specialist retailers.

Chadstone in Melbourne's south east is the largest shopping centre in the Southern Hemisphere, with over 530 stores and, for tourists, free 30-minute shuttle-bus transfers, departing Melbourne's city centre. Westfield Doncaster is just a 20 minute drive to the east of Melbourne's city centre, with over 400 stores to choose from.
