Prahran is a suburb of Melbourne, Australia, situated just five kilometres from the central business district of the city. The area is known for its diversity and multiculturalism, a fact that is revealed in its array of ethnic restaurants and chic cafes. Prahran is also a hub of gay culture in Melbourne, and one of the city’s premier gay villages is located on Commercial Road. Prahran was founded in the 19th century, and quickly became a popular location for shopping and entertainment. In addition to the bevy of architecturally significant commercial buildings, Prahran is known for its Victorian terrace houses.
- Shop at upscale fashion boutiques on Chapel Street in Prahran, where you will find trendy cafes that give the Melbourne suburb a very European feel.
- Stroll down Greville Street where you will find quirky bookstores, music shops, and second hand clothing stores leftover from when the area was the hub of Melbourne’s hippie community.
- Walk through the ornate gates of Princess Park where you will find nice walking paths, an old church turned theatre and one of the best skateboarding parks in Melbourne.
Prahran is located just a short distance from the central business district of Melbourne, so it is easy to reach using public transportation. The Sandringham line of the train goes through Prahran, stopping at the Prahran station that is centrally located in the suburb, making for the perfect starting point. The tram is the most popular form of local transportation and there are several routes that pass through Prahran, stopping near the main attractions. Most of the shops and restaurants are located within walking distance of each other, so it is best to take public transport and then walk.
