Melbourne Swanston Street

Swanston Street used to be a pedestrian precinct, but is now due to open to vehicles during the night.

On the corner of Swanston and Victoria Street you'll find the Melbourne City Baths. It was built in 1903 but is still open today as a sports centre.

Further along, on the Cnr Swanston and Collins Street, is Melbourne Town Hall and is opposite the Capitol Theatre (113 Swanston Street), which was built in 1927 and hosts a kaleidoscopic creation on the ceiling. The Town Hall offers free tours Tuesday - Thursday at 10.30am and 2.30pm. It is necessary, however, to book in advance. Call (03) 9658 9464.

You will also find the State Library of Victoria to the North of Swanston Street. The 19th Century building (opened in 1856) hosts a fantastic reading room with a domed ceiling. The library offers free tours Monday - Friday at 2pm, and the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month. Normal opening times are:

Everyday 10am - 6pm with late nights Monday and Friday until 9pm.
