There are quite a few large shopping malls in central Melbourne with a great variety of shops. What’s different about this one is the amazing chimney structure in the middle of it. Definitely worth a visit

Melbourne Central is like all other Malls. The building is exquisite and timeless. Good bargains only when on sale

Much to see, many shops, many places to eat, and we went to the cinema as well. It was easy to move around and find things we wanted to see.

Got off the train early as we became confused with the name. Still, it didn't matter as the mall was packed with everything you could possibly want.

Lots of stores available over a few floors. Stores cover different price ranges. The old tower inside the shopping area is pretty.
