When you’re not engaging in some well-deserved retail therapy at Downtown’s unique boutiques, or indulging in a leisurely lunch at an outdoor deck or rooftop terrace, Downtown Melbourne has so much more to explore.

Spend a sunny afternoon strolling the sidewalks and take shade under the oak trees with an ice-cold fresh-squeezed cocktail. Sight-see Downtown’s many interesting historic and architectural structures, and then wax nostalgic by catching the train making one of its daily crossings. Or take advantage of Downtown Melbourne’s waterfront location on the Indian River Lagoon, and enjoy fishing and paddling at Crane Creek.

With Downtown Melbourne’s unique and vibrant mix of one-of-a-kind offerings, there’s something for everyone. Come uncover the unexpected.
