Some of Australia’s tallest skyscrapers are situated along Collins Street, including the striking Rialto Towers, which is one of the Southern Hemisphere’s tallest buildings.

As you might imagine, the views from up here are outstanding, stretching up to 65 kilometres on a clear day.

One of the reasons to visit Collins Street is the architecture. There are a number of Victorian-era masterpieces on display here, including the 1866 St Michael’s Church and the 1845 Collins Street Baptist Church. Both churches continue to serve as working places of worship for Melbourne residents. Just along the street are cathedrals devoted to commerce, including the Old Stock Exchange and the Gothic Bank, both built in the late 1800s.
