Queen Victoria Market occupies 7 hectares within the Melbourne Central Business District. There are 140 leasehold premises and over 600 periodical licence stallholders. It is a well-known historical and cultural icon for the City of Melbourne, and it’s the largest and most original retail market in the metropolitan area.
The Market is, in fact, a fresh food market, but giftware and souvenirs have become an important part of the setup. These often hand-crafted trinkets have a particular appeal to interstate and overseas tourists. This year, the Market expects to have approximately 10 million or more shoppers visiting the site, making it an important Melbourne institution. However, the most impressive thing about the market is that you can find almost anything there.
One of the places you shouldn't miss while visiting Melbourne is Queen Victoria Market. Moreover, since Hotel Lindrum is located within walking distance, that makes it the ideal place for accommodation. You can turn your room into a CBD area home base from which you can explore all the incredible and iconic sights in the city.
