Learn the history of Melbourne’s best-known street
Running approximately east to west, and exactly one mile in length is the most famous street in Melbourne – Little Collins Street. Named in the early 19th century after Lieutenant-Governor David Collins who led a group of settlers in a short-lived settlement at Sorrento, Little Collins Street is full of Victorian culture that is still seen today.
Running parallel to and to the north of Collins Street, this street has a lot to offer. At the eastern end lies the ‘Paris End,’ which retains its uptown status due to the designer boutiques, heritage building conservations, and cafes that line the street. The western end is the financial heart of Melbourne, and is home to various banks and insurance companies.
There are an abundance of things to see and do in Little Collins Street – visit a play at the Athenaeum Theatre, wine and dine in the many quality restaurants and cafes, or hit the pavement (and your wallet) to do some serious shopping.
