I love the little lanes in Melbourne, so unique and simply amazing. I think we went to Centre Place every single day just to enjoy the vibe there. Small alleys, lots of people, great vibe and energy, lots of food stalls and cafes, with all...More

Well worth a walk through this laneway. Heaps of cafes and places to grab a snack. The people watching is great. All sorts from all countries. Also next to some other laneway that are also worth a look.

It is narrow, a little dark and packed with a variety of different little restaurants that fill out onto the laneway. Well worth a visit as it has good atmosphere. Just continue north from Block Place.

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

No most likely not. Christmas Day very little is open. We were there during a public holiday period when we visited and there was nothing open. Definitely plan ahead for food supplies on this day.
