The centennial Victoria St tour — a glimpse of Melbourne
Victoria St, Melbourne’s east-west main street, is named for its colonial color. Victoria St has a history of more than 100 years, making it an ancient neighborhood in Australia’s short history. It was also the name of the street that attracted me and told me that there should be a lot of buildings here that were antique, and it was this attraction that prompted me to wander and walk along the street many times. There was, of course, no sound of horse-drawn carriages crushing the stony road, but more of the modern steel thump of cars and trolleys.
Victoria St, best known for its familiar Queen Victoria Market, is the most intact 19th-century Market in the southern hemisphere and remains largely intact to this day as one of Melbourne’s heritage buildings.

Signs from the past can still be seen dimly on the walls of many of Victoria St’s old buildings and shops, some of which have been peeled off with layers of century-old signs that show how the storefront has come close to being owned by its owners. At 442 Victoria St, the Victorian building is quintessentially British, with cast-iron railings and balconies that suggest luxury and should have been a mansion.
There is a church in Victoria St, which is said to be the largest parish church in Australia. This church is called St Mary Star church. Due to historical reasons, the century-old church was completely restored until 2002. Across from the Queen Victoria Market is the royal Melbourne regiment’s 6th battalion hall, also a Melbourne conservation building.
