Once the busiest east–west thoroughfare in the city, Bourke Street Mall is a pedestrian-only zone—but watch out for those trams! Two of the city's biggest department stores are here; an essential part of growing up in Melbourne is being taken to Myer at Christmas to see the window displays.
Myer. Myer is one of the country's largest department stores, carrying a myriad of both casual and luxury brands for men and women. 314–336 Bourke St., between Elizabeth and Swanston Sts., 3000. 03/9661–1111.
David Jones. This big department store has a large array of luxury brands for both men and women. 310 Bourke St., between Elizabeth and Swanston Sts., 3000. 03/9643–2222.
