Melbourne Chinatown is one of the best Chinatown's in Australia. Melbourne has a long history of Chinese immigration dating back to the 1850's during the gold rush in Victoria. It's not surprising that there is a great Chinatown here.

 

Melbourne's Chinatown is focused around 3 blocks at the top end of Little Bourke Street in the Melbourne CBD, between Swantson Street up to Spring Street. There also restaurants, Asian grocery stores, clothes and other specialty shops off the side streets including Exhibition Street, Russell Street, Swanston Streeet and other small laneways running off Little Bourke Street.
