Royal Arcade information
This Parisian-style shopping arcade was built between 1869 and 1870 and is Melbourne’s oldest; the upper walls retain much of the original 19th-century detail. The black-and-white chequered path leads to the mythological figures of giant brothers Gog and Magog, perched with hammers atop the arched exit to Little Collins St. They’ve been striking the hour here since 1892. The businesses within are a interesting mix of the classy and the common.
