One of Melbourne’s most popular shopping precincts, Bourke Street Mall is a lively hub of activity located in the centre of the CBD. The pedestrian and tram-only strip is always bustling, day and night, with shoppers, tourists, city workers and buskers.
Bourke Street Mall is widely regarded as the retail heart of the city, and is home to colossal department stores as well as an array of smaller shops selling music, clothes, jewellery, shoes and more.
David Jones and Myer – Melbourne’s largest department stores – dominate the strip. David Jones occupies many levels over three buildings, featuring women’s fashion, cosmetics, accessories and shoes; menswear; kid’s wear; gourmet food and home wares. Myer is the largest department store in the southern hemisphere, selling everything from designer fashion and street wear to electronics and furniture.
Just next door to Myer – on the corner of Bourke and Elizabeth streets – sits the beautiful Melbourne GPO. The original postal building was refurbished and reopened in 2004 and today showcases the very best in fashion, luxury goods and dining.
Also making a home on the strip are a number of flagship stores of major brands including Sportsgirl, Adidas, The Body Shop, Jetty Surf, General Pants Co. and Zara.
Bourke Street Mall is located between Swanston and Elizabeth streets, just a short stroll away from one of the city’s finest hotels, Clarion Suites Gateway. Stay at Clarion Suites on your next Melbourne visit to enjoy the very best in shopping, culture and excitement!
