Starting at Windsor Station (which is on the Sandringham line, 10 minutes from Flinders Street) and doing a quick loop around the Windsor end (a foody's paradise) of Chapel Street.

You'll take in Melbourne Bowls Club, the oldest bowls club in Australia, a thriving laneway covered in artworks and you'll finish up close to The Astor theatre, a cinema which has retained all of it's original 1930s charm.

Windsor has undergone a dramatic gentrification in the last decade and is now chock full of great restaurants, pubs and bars. From rough and ready to fine dining, you are spoilt for choice here!
