Australia on Collins is a favourite Melbourne shopping destination for locals and visitors alike. The art deco style centre fronts both Collins and Lt Collins Streets in the block between Swanston and Elizabeth, next to the famous Novotel on Collins Hotel.
The shopping centre aims to capture the essence of cosmopolitan Melbourne, with over 60 speciality stores including fashion, gifts, homewares, health and beauty. A number of top Australian brands – such as Country Road, David Lawrence, Lincraft, Maggie T, OJAY and Rodney Clark – make their home in the centre, along with numerous boutique clothing and footwear stores.
The history of the site dates back to its days as a café in the 1800s. Gunsler’s Cafe (later renamed The Vienna) was the centre of social life in Melbourne. Today, Australia on Collins carries on this tradition as a thriving shopping hub and popular meeting place.
On the bottom floor is an expansive, newly refurbished food court, where traders ply everything from Mexican and Thai to muffins and burgers. For more refined dining, a restaurant and café can be found on the higher levels.
Also on offer at Australia on Collins is swimwear, physiotherapy, jewellery, pharmacy and hairdressing services, and – perhaps best of all – a chocolate specialty store.
