Welcome to Melbourne's CBD and Inner City
Melbourne’s city centre is extremely dynamic and entertaining. The city centre boasts around 15 precincts - some streets, others small pockets - with their own unique charm, including Chinatown, Collins Street, the Greek precinct, Lygon Street, St Kilda Road and the hardware precinct.
The Central Business District (CBD) is Melbourne's business and financial centre. It is home to retail, financial, legal, administrative, recreational, tourist and entertainment facilities. The CBD is in fact a city within a city. Here, you'll find services operating 24 hours a day.
For great shopping, take a stroll along Collins Street and Chinatown. Appreciate the beauty of Melbourne Town Hall and Saint Paul's Cathedral, and visit the Old Melbourne Gaol and the Koorie Heritage Trust Cultural Centre.
For the best view of the city, take the lift to the Observation Deck at the Rialto Tower. The CBD also boasts the Art Centre, and lots of theatres and venues.
