Lovely walk around the Yarra Banks and reasonable food precinct in the food court BUT the toilet facilities put shame on the centre. Worse than 3rd world standards and as I said could not be worse in Romania where I have also visited. Management obviously...More

Located on the southern back of Yarra river and a short walk from Flinders Station, Southgate is a dining and shopping precinct. We visited this place to have lunch at one of its many restaurants and a stroll around the place. This is probably one...More

There is some shopping available. A number of restaurants on the river side with great views over the Yarra river. There is of course a Mall food court with cheaper food too.

Lovely for an evening stroll along the Yarra River. Southgate has bars, restaurants and shops for everyone to enjoy. The shopping isn't great but there's a fabulous bookshop next to PJ O'Briens. There's a food court and ice cream shop with great views of the...More

From quick fast food to fancy dining, this shopping mall has it all. Right by the Princes Bridge and Flinders Street Station, you’ll find anything here for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Amazing view of the city and a couple bookstores and clothing shops as well!

The food on the ground floor eateries is very poor quality. The pho soup would have to be the worst I have ever tasted. The Asian noodles from another eatery were also horrible. Will never make the mistake of eating in there Iv in Melbourne.

Another great little area of Melbourne that we didn’t explore on our first trip last year. More bars, eateries and shops. What we loved was the food court. So easy just to nip in, choose the kind of food you want, buy and eat at...More

Southgate is a really great place to be at when you want to do a number of things. We went there to check it out, more than anything else. There are numerous shops of every kind. There are restaurants, cafes, fashion shops, you name it,...More

Located along the banks of the Yarra river and a key event area for those attending theatre, dance and opera performances at the Arts centre. You can also pick up a bite to eat on the way to MCG. Overall--9/10
