I imagine you would like Chadstone shopping centre, Bourke street Mall

Their websites will have their Easter opening hours

https://www.chadstone.com.au/

Myriad other things to see & do. https:/…guide-to-melbourne.html

Having no idea of your interests, it’s a bit pointless making recommendations that might bore you to sobs

Quite a few shops remain open on Good Friday here Perthite - unlike in Perth. (positively advanced ;) )

Markets are closed.

OP places like the Aquarium and Zoo are open 365 days a year. Docklands Star - the big observatory wheel is open 365 days. Also Eureka Skydeck https://www.eurekaskydeck.com.au all year round.

This is a partial list showing opening times for a fair few shops and shopping centres, and cafes etc.

Yes many shops are open on Sunday, unless they are regularly closed on that day. Some may have shorter opening hours.

#3 PP I visited over Easter some years back and Good Friday there were no shops open in the CBD, only cafes. Southbank was pumping. I see you have stated that Bourke St Mall is closed plus looking at the link showing what is open, I'd think the same amount of shops are open there as here. Good Friday is as much a shopping day as Chridstmas Day, whether you be in Melbourne or Perth. :-)

You might enjoy the Good Friday Appeal at the Convention Centre. A fun day out especially if you have kids.

No I said the GPO - a big shopping mall - is closed. It's located in Bourke St Mall. Bourke st is as wide open as it always is.
