Quick Guide to Chinatown Melbourne 

daytime at Chinatown Melbourne

Chinatown Melbourne was established in 1851 when the first Chinese immigrants arrived for the gold rush, and it became the longest continuous Chinese settlement in the western world.

Throughout the years, Melbourne’s Chinatown has become a popular destination in the city centre for both local and international visitors. 

The Tianjin Garden marks the eastern entrance of Chinatown at Spring Street, and at the same time, it’s an icon for Chinatown that has been collaboratively conceived by designers from Melbourne and Tianjin. The Garden has a beautiful, relaxing area with its water feature, pavilion, and seating space for visitors, office workers, families, and students.

This part of the city is loaded with a wide range of restaurants from fine dining to laneway and arcade noodle. Besides that, here you can find many bookstores, fashion boutiques, and other retail outlets in arcades such as the Village Centre, The Target Centre, and the Paramount Plaza. But what gives this area a unique vibe are different traditional festivals and activities that you can enjoy while visiting.
