Collins Street History Walk

The Collins Street Walk takes you on a stroll down one of Melbourne’s oldest and most prestigious streets. Exploring the architecture, art, retail and commercial institutions of this central thoroughfare will reveal not only the urban history of Collins Street but that of the entire city as it has developed over the last 150 years.

From the ‘Paris End’ to the financial district, you will discover how and why this grand tree lined boulevard has held the mantle of Melbourne's premier address since it was laid out as part of the city’s original grid of streets in 1837.
