Still one of Melbourne’s main shopping areas and I was amazed to see its continued vibrancy, especially after the main sales period. A key area is the food court at level 3 where the shops offerings are seriously wide ranging, great value for money ,...More

I hate shopping centres but I love a good food court and this one has an amazing selection of my favourite cuisine, south East Asian. Two excellent Malaysian stalls next to each other. Good portions and cheap!

Nice place to go if you want to eat something ( but more expensive than outside ). Also many brands are here but not luxury at all.

Melbourne has several malls, and Emporium is one of the nicest ones. Tidy and clean, good lighting, good range of shops, and some very tasty food places to pop in to while shopping.

Spend some time walking around all the shops in this centrally located shopping mall. Good variety of goods, labels and shops. Very open with plenty of space, bright and airy. We stopped here for an early brunch too.

Walked around the various levels. Large variety of shops and eateries. Make sure you go to level 3 for the best eats. Uniqlo is the highlight. Stores are high end stores.

The mall was huge but mainly high end. Personally i liked the uniqlo the most because it occupied few levels! Besides shopping, there's few restaurants at the basement.

My first thought was "what - a great restaurant in a food court". However, clearly I had never been to this upscale mall in CBD yet. The choice at the food court is very wide and the vegetarian option turned out to be very tasteful.

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
