Nice place for a morning walk. Lots of food options, breakfast at the restaurants or in the food court. Lots of shopping for local products. The market offer a huge variety of fruits and meat stuff. Lots of choices for strawberries, and cherries, etc.

I hadn't visited the Vic markets in years. Really, quite underwhelming. I wouldn't bother unless you're nearby and very bored.

So many cuisines to choose from. Bao hamburgers there are magnificent, as is the pavlova stand and macaroon shop! Too much to choose from but all food looked great! Not as many stalls as the day market but if you want dinner, head here! Great atmosphere and even though the food lines look long, they move super quick!

One of the best markets in Australia, wonderful fresh produce, meat , fruit, vegetables,cheeses, On the northern perimeter of the city so it is a bit of a walk from most hotels.

Easy to park here if you're not based in the city. Liked the food halls best, got some sense of the history of the place. some of the other general stalls were a bit tacky - stuff you could get anywhere but worth a stroll around.

Everything a market should be for all types of food, kitschy souvenirs and more. It's worth it just to walk and take in the variety of food on sale even if you have no need for a steak or vegetables.

I always go shopping here. We can get fresh meat , fresh vegetable , and fresh fruit here. What a nice market! I love eating seafood. That's why I always go and buy my fresh seafood here. I love this market, and hope that there should be something new.

...otherwise you won't stop buying all those little yummy treats. The fresh fish, Vegis and the incredible cheese were just amazing. Went there for breakfast. It's great to observe the crowd with a good coffee and baguette

We had breakfast along Elizabeth St before we paid a visit at Queen Victoria Market. After that we found that there were lots of shops selling bread, sandwich coffee and tea inside the market. Therefore if you plan to have breakfast pls eat inside the market. There were also markets for fruits, vegetable and honey. We spent most of the... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
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.
