QUEENS PARADE, CLIFTON HILL

Clifton Hill is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 4 km north-east of Melbourne's Central Business District. Its local government area is the City of Yarra. At the 2011 Census, Clifton Hill had a population of 5,790.Described in the 1880s as the "Toorak of Collingwood", Clifton Hill fell out of favour, along with much of inner Melbourne by the mid 20th century. Later becoming a centre of Melbourne's bohemianism, the suburb has undergone rapid gentrification in recent years, and is now considered one of Melbourne's most liveable suburbs.

The Queens Parade shopping strip has a great village atmosphere and is one of Melbourne’s well kept secrets. From a range of speciality shops including jewellers, boutique clothes & shoe shops, antiques plus plenty of shops for everyday needs, there is something for everyone there. One can take a stroll along the wide footpaths and tree lined streets, stop for a coffee and sit outside of one of the many cafés and just enjoy the atmosphere.

  3. For those of us who don't like ginormous shopping complexes that are impossible to park in and navigate, strolling in the High St looks wonderful. Smaller shops, fresher fruit, more personal service.

  8. This is such a quaint shopping centre Nick. So much more preferable to the huge department stores and shopping complexes.
