How the Collins Street Precinct is embracing the winter months

By Collins Street Precinct

With the CBD once again bustling with energy, the Collins Street Precinct is delighted to be welcoming visitors back for the winter season.

Whether you’re an office worker who is making the move back to office life after two years at home or someone from out of town looking for a change of scenery, there is more than enough to fill your winter days.

While other cities may dread the cold, here in Melbourne, the cooler months are truly embraced as a special time of year. With new season fashion filling the stores and the perfect winter wardrobe waiting to be purchased, no matter what your taste, it’s time to rug up and explore the city’s premium retail destination.

Refresh your wardrobe with some new season fashion from the likes of Reiss in St Collins Lane, Moncler at the Paris end of town, Mulberry in the 80 Collins precinct, Decjuba in Collins Place, Vault in the historic Block Arcade or Saba in Collins 234.

To warm you from the inside out, fill your belly with some delicious Collins St eats. Some suggestions include checking out the newly opened DAME in Collins Place; exploring the underground George on Collins; sitting by the open fireplace at Trinket on Flinders Lane or visiting Farmer’s Daughters where the Rooftop features a retractable roof and heaters to protect you from the elements.

Now the Collins Street Precinct isn’t just known for its fashion and food; you may also warm your heart with some amazing winter theatre. Collins St’s Regent Theatre is currently playing host to Rodgers + Hammerstein’s CINDERELLA and will soon welcome the smash-hit, HAIRSPRAY, taking the stage in August.

Plus, to make your CINDERELLA experience even more special, Collins Street Precinct’s members have put on a range of special offers, so you too can pop on your glass slippers, jump into your royal carriage (or free tram) and celebrate theatre in Melbourne!

Collins Street Precinct Group president Luke Harris said,


“I really do think that there’s something incredibly magical about winter on Collins St. As we’ve missed out on truly experiencing the cooler months over the past two years due to lockdowns, I also think there’s an even bigger buzz in the city this winter.”


“No matter how you want to spend your day in the city, Collins St is the place to be this winter.” •
