Melbourne has a mix of high-end fashion brands and boutiques, making it the ideal weekend shopping destination. Before heading up to the Paris end of Collins Street, stroll through the historic Block Arcade and Royal Arcade. Alternatively, you can visit Bourke Street Mail and Emporium, both of which are must-see destinations for visitors. Melbourne op shops have to be some of the best second-hand stores! Look for treasures at Salvos on Bourke Street or Brotherhood in St Laurance City.
