Known as the New York end of Collins Street, our newest store is located at 495 Collins Street, just next door to the Intercontinental Melbourne The Rialto Hotel in the heart of Melbourne’s financial district. It is our sixth Melbourne store, and fourth in the CBD after we first opened at the Paris end of Collins Street in 1965. Located within a heritage listed Queen Anne style building that dates back to the late 1800’s, the architecture is a perfect fit for Haigh’s. Whether you are staying in the hotel, or visiting the busy Docklands, our team are ready to help you find something delicious at one of our largest stores.

Haighs have the best, most addictive chocolates and thoroughly recommend their freckles. They are amazing to hold in your mouth and enjoy the pure bliss as they dissolve in your mouth. The crunchy topping only adds to the pleasure.

Busy time of year for this shop, variety of eggs to choose from. Love the dark chocolate. Finding the arcade can be tricky, but don't forget to check out the Dessert shop just down the arcade. You will be in for a wait here.

It's impossible to go into the city of Melbourne and not visit Haighs. Their dark chocolate truffles are the world's best in my opinion, and I love the fact they give me a free tasting too.

If you're a tourist or a local this is a must-do! Haigh's have the best chocolate around; far superior to Lindt in my opinion. The staff are friendly and the selection is amazing.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood 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.
