Independent, proud and a little bit fancy – Prahran delights with its mix of boho charm, an innovative foodie scene and high street fashion.
Technically in South Yarra, Prahran Market is Australia's oldest food market and the perfect place to satisfy your food obsession. Fill your basket with fresh produce, fine cheeses, smallgoods, organic meats, seafood, spices and even fresh flowers. It's all here. Graze your way through and swap recipes with local characters.
Make a beeline for Greville Street, the spiritual hub of Prahran. While there may be less kitsch than there once was, the street retains its unique appeal. Pick up a coffee and wander past vintage stores, breezy cafes, gallery spaces and outposts of local designers.
Continue your collector's journey at Chapel Street Bazaar, where you can fossick through stalls packed with retro homewares, vintage clothes and other 'must-haves'.
