Chinatown, Melbourne

Many cities around the world have their Chinatowns and Melbourne, with its large Chinese population, is no exception.

Located on Little Bourke Street in inner City Melbourne is Chinatown. Chinatown delivers an abundance of Chinese cultural delights to the people of Melbourne, whether it be restaurants, bars or even specialised Asian Grocery Stores.

Established by Chinese prospectors during the Victorian Goldrush in 1851, Mebourne's "Chinatown" is the oldest Chinatown in Australia. Beautiful colours, picturesque landmarks and jovial people line Little Bourke Street from Swanston Street to Spring Street.

Indulge in a variety of cuisine, ranging from Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Indian and loads loads more. There's definitely something in Chinatown for everyone to please all taste buds.

For the party folk out there, Chinatown offers a variety of bars and clubs with an impressive nightlife. Be sure to check out "FAD gallery" which is tucked away just off Chinatown.

From the early hours of the day to the late hours at night there is always something happening through the streets of Chinatown.

A visit to Chinatown should include a stop off at the Chinese Museum located off Little Bourke Street in Cohen Place. With five floors and 200 years of Chinese history on display, including three generations of Chinese dragons, it's a place to see.
