A slice of Melbourne’s culture at your doorstep
Victoria became a hub for Chinese immigration during the gold rush in the 1800’s. Drawn by the promise of striking it rich, many Chinese adventurers traveled to Australia and while the gold soon dried up, many chose to stay in Melbourne rather than head back home. And so Melbourne’s Chinatown was born.
Extending along Little Bourke Street, this once humble home to Australia’s Chinese immigrant population - one of the longest running settlements outside of Asia - has since become a hub of cultural excellence, well preserved and refurbished in the intervening years for locals and tourists alike who come to visit.
From the iconic hanging lanterns to the karaoke bars and local cuisine, Chinatown is full of character and local culture. The low rise brick buildings still maintain their beauty to this day, lining the streets that regularly play host to markets, traditional festivals, and special events like Chinese New Year.
So step through the Chinatown arches and experience everything this historic slice of Melbourne has to offer with Hotel Grand Chancellor Melbourne.
