Destination Guide

On the fringe of the CBD, just south of the Yarra, the City of Stonnington is home to great fashion and design - from the runway of Chapel Street to the fashion capital of Chadstone.

Independent designers, big fashion brands, emerging labels and retro boutiques create a stylish mix, attracting shoppers from across Melbourne and around the world.

And each of the shopping precincts has its own character. Explore High Street for elegant fashion, furnishings and homewares; Toorak Road and Toorak Village are graced with the best local and international designers as well as speciality shops filled with must-have shoes, bags, jewellery and gifts. Glenferrie Road is where the locals shop with excellent delis, restaurants and fashion stores.

And after all that shopping, it’s time to refuel. The entire area is just as famous for it’s sunny street cafes, restaurants and bars. The coffee is always excellent and so is the passing parade. After dark, Chapel Street is seriously lively with funky clubs, boutique bars and venues where you can party all night.

Explore the City of Stonnington a little further and you’ll find a thriving arts community, more than 30 galleries and a year round program of events, festivals and performances. The 10 day Stonnington Jazz Festival held in May has an unsurpassed reputation, and catch a show live show at Chapel Off Chapel, the city’s premier performance venue.
