Melbourne Central, Melbourne: 7 reviews and 10 photos


A shopping mall in the centre of the city would not normally be something I would be recommending! It's a run of the mill mall built over the railway station - although to give it its due, things have improved considerably in the last couple of years following new owners. The layout has improved, quality of shops on the up (although they are generally the high street chain shops), food courts and restaurants/cafes. There's also ten-pin bowling and a new 11 screen cinema complex. But the main attraction of Melbourne Central is the historic Shot Tower. This was built in 1889, with the shopping mall and 20 storey glass cone built over it a little more recently! :)
