QV Centre

Melbourne’s humming open-air retail precinct contains over 120 stores, including fashion boutiques, department stores, cosmopolitan bars and great dining venues.

Explore interconnected lanes lined with dynamic stores and cafés in the QV Centre, an exciting retail precinct spread across an entire city block. With its wide range of retailers, QV is one of Melbourne’s defining shopping experiences. Explore the brightly colored storefronts and check out the array of specialty shops. Find exactly what you need at the department stores. Fast dining options and laid-back bars make QV a great place to pick up a snack or linger with friends.

QV blends seamlessly with Melbourne’s city streets. Enter the retail precinct via the network of pedestrianized lanes and enjoy the open-air atmosphere within. On the ground floor, you’ll find arcades of stores that lead to a central dining area. Check out boutiques and classic labels showcasing the city’s latest fashion offerings. Go window-shopping or treat yourself to a new item for your wardrobe. If you have homewares or groceries in mind, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for at one of the department stores and supermarkets within the QV Centre.

In the dining area, choose a snack or meal from the extensive range of kiosks and casual outlets selling fast and fresh food from all over the world. If you’d prefer a more intimate dining experience, make your way upstairs to one of the restaurants that line the outdoor QV Square. This European-style piazza is a great place to dine for breakfast, lunch or dinner. You’ll see the façade of the historic Queen Victoria Women’s Hospital, which dates back to 1846 and anchors the complex. This area is regularly used for city events and pop-up activities, such as ice-skating rinks and cooking demonstrations. Browse QV’s art galleries and bookstores or challenge your friends to a game of billiards or ten-pin bowling.

The QV Centre is located on a city block in downtown Melbourne. It is easily accessible by tram, train and bus. Take advantage of the retail precinct’s 24-hour underground parking lot. The QV Centre is open daily until late in the evening; however, individual stores will have different trading hours.
