Melbourne Central

Shopping Centre in City Centre

With more than 300 stores, a bowling alley, cinemas, bars, eateries and rooftop glamping, this complex can be fiendishly noisy and confusing, but the scores of students who shop and socialise here don’t seem to mind. At its heart a lead shot tower (1889) rises incongruously beneath a great glass cone, an implacable structure in a fast-moving retail environment.
