A quintessential part of Melbourne where shopping, staying, strolling and checking out cafe and restaurant menus is the thing  is to do.

From one end of Toorak Road to the other, it’s  all about specialty shops; outstanding jewellery, handmade designs, interesting cafes, brilliant restaurants and bars, exciting galleries, designer lighting, the finest leather goods, home wares, very special gifts and a myriad of services.

With easter upon us meet Arno Backes of Ganache Chocolate at 250 Toorak Road South and, if you can, pop in over the next few days for something deliciously decadent.

There are more than 300 stores with men’s and women’s fashion setting the scene. Iconic stores -  It’s savvy and stylish with the best local and imported designers, hard to find, must have shoes and bags, unusual accessories, and vintage fashion.

It’s a kilometre of unique stores, close to the City, Chapel Street, St Kilda beach and many of Melbourne’s art and sporting venues.
