Shopping

Shopping in Melbourne always comes with added extras, with laneway discoveries and cafe culture as much a part of the experience as the loot from local designers and the best of international brands.

Ever-evolving shopping choices make it possible to create a different shopping spree every time you venture out, whether you're after high fashion or fine art, jewellery or accessories, homewares or stationery. The city's myriad laneways and arcades harbour untold gems, inner city precincts spoil you for choice, while department stores and shopping centres continue to raise the bar.

The city's passion for fashion is a serious matter, a fact not overlooked by international retail giants looking to establish Australian outposts, and local designers keen on getting a strong start.
