Great original architecture and an interesting mix of shops. Well worth the ten minutes it takes to walk through. Or stay longer and visit some of the shops.

A very quaint old historical building in Melbourne. Filled with shops with a historical character. Its like walking into the secret lanes in the first Harry Potter movie. Beautiful architecture and quality shops. Must visit the cafes, Heigh's chocolate and Hopetouun cafe.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
