Melbourne Central

The Melbourne Central shopping complex has undergone a major facelift, with some serious thought given to the way Melburnians like to shop. The historic nine-storey shot tower and pointed glass ceiling remain, but it now offers less of a one-stop shopping experience and more of an adventure through a network of arcades and laneways. But this is not so much an innovation as a restoration of Melbourne as it was intended to be. An underground shopping concourse leads from the Lonsdale Street entrance to Melbourne Central Station. (03) 9922 1122; open 10am–6pm Mon–Thurs and Sat, 10am–9pm Fri, 10am–5pm Sun.
