Collins St/Swanston St, Melbourne

(4.4/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
Take a stroll down the tree-lined boulevard Collins St/Swanston St, home to some of Australia's best examples of Victorian architecture. As you walk, note the large Collins Street Baptist, St Michael's Uniting, and Scot's Presbyterian churches, and the magnificent Town Hall. Enter the "Cathedrals of Commerce"--including William Pitt's Venetian gothic-style Old Stock Exchange and William Wardell's Gothic Bank--to see some of Melbourne's finest interiors. Head to the "Paris End" for shopping to rival the European capital of culture from which it takes its name. The street is 1.6 km (1 mi) long.
