  • 'The Original Lolly' Store: Dutch liqourice

    by MishyM Written Mar 6, 2006

    This is just a tip for people who wish to buy Dutch liquorice in Melbourne - this really is one of the best places to do so. The Lollyshop on Lygon street sells about 15 different varities of Dutch liquorice - for double salt to sweet, including fishes, giant diamonds and much much more. Also the price is quite good.

    I know how hard it is to find Dutch liquorice when in a new country, so I highly reccomend this shop.

    While on this topic - there is another non-Dutch liquorice here that is to die for - and that is the white chocolate covered rasberry liquorice. It is amazing!

    Address: 239 Lygon St

    Directions: http://melbourne.citysearch.com.au/E/V/MELBO/0062/20/06/2.html

    Take a look there for a good map of the area - easily accessable by bus or tram.

    I would suggest you take the tram to melbourne University and then Lygon street in a 2 min walk away

    Go straight to Markets. Do not pass go.

    by ChadSteve1975 Written Feb 14, 2004

    Victoria St Markets are a unique quality to Melbourne. Held daily in what is no more than a big shed the markets are a central venue for trader to show their wares.

    The Makets are huge. Luckily though most of the shops repeat themselves after about 3 rows.

    You can spend between 1 and 3 hrs checking out all it has to offer.

    What to buy: If you're on an elongated stay. Buy your fresh food here.

    Otherwise you can pick up cheap shirts, jumpers, hat, socks, underwear. You name they've got it.

    What to pay: Whatever. Try bargaining... maybe they'll budge.

    Address: Victoria St. Up near Flagstaff Gardens.

    Southgate shopping centre: Local gifts

    by pugwashman Written Nov 29, 2004

    situated on the banks of the Yarra the Southgate shopping centre has some very nice gift shops if you're after some mementos of your stay in Aus. There is also a food hall if you get peckish, and ferry terminals if you fancy a cruise down the Yarra.

    Southgate from the Rialto Tower
