Chapel Street Shopping Walk (Self Guided), Melbourne

From old fashion pawnbrokers all the way up to exclusive fashion boutiques, there is something for everyone on Chapel Street. The long straight road extends for more than two miles and crosses several neighborhoods. And it is a shopper’s paradise.

Once on the sidewalks, you will be presented with a superb range of choices, including the latest fashions, vintage treasures, bags, accessories, shoes and much more. Explore the Prahran neighborhood, especially Greville Street. This funky avenue encompasses vintage stores, an independent record shop and gallery spaces.

Head to one of Chapel Street’s biggest and most popular attractions, the Jam Factory. Inside this shopping and entertainment complex are numerous fashion stores, restaurants and cafés. You will find even more eateries elsewhere in the Chapel Street locale. They include bakeries and Italian, Indian and Mexican restaurants.

While in the neighborhood, search through the shelves and stalls of Chapel Street Bazaar. This huge secondhand store is a local institution and is filled to the brim with such goodies as furniture, crockery, lamps, records, dolls, jewelry, model boats, antiques, prints, vintage clothing and much more.
