Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were in Melbourne for a weekend and did some shopping at DJ Bourke Street. Fabulous store and absolutely fantastic service from Kerry ( Carla Zampati on level 3 ) who was very knowledgeable and a very friendly Salesperson who really knows her products. An absolute rarity nowadays. Then we were attended to by Maryanne ( level 4 mens ) who was also very friendly and helpful. She went above and beyond to assist us. In fact both the Salespersons dedication to their vocation should be acknowledged and David Jones should be very proud to have them. Thank you again Kerry & Maryanne.

Great centrally located department store. ground floor level being up and down is inconvenient for people with mobility issues . has all expected product but is on pricey side and very brand focused and organised in brand sections that can can it hard to compare product.

Trying to buy a Dyson hairdryer is impossible: the groundfloor stand is display only which we found out after five minutes waiting for an assistant. Then we were sent to the top floor where an assistant had to go down to the groundfloor storeroom to find out that he couldn’t unlock the cupboard with said product. Embarrassing waste of time!

David Jones, universally known to its regular customers as DJs, is upmarket department store to be found in the Bourke St Mall, the centre of Melbourne retailing. The former shop on the south side of the Mall is being rebuilt. DJs is known for its quality merchandise. Many choosy clients would shop nowhere else.

The Bourke St men's store was busy with a midseason sale. Many people only shop at David Jones -- universally known as DJs -- during sale time. There were certainly lots of shoppers in the men's department, which takes up one whole store in Bourke St. Many Melburnians think that DJs stock quality merchandise, but you pay the price.

David Jones is one of Australia's large department stores. It is not cheap and it's probably better for those with the patience of a saint, as it takes a fairly long time to be served. They do have some really lovely things for sale and it is worth visiting, and hopefully when you go there next time you may be luckier than us.
