Before taking to the streets of the shopping district, grab a terrace breakfast or coffee at a local cafe, or early Yum Cha at one of the Chinese restaurants. Chapel Street and Toorak Road are the go-to places for the best window shopping, so check out what's on offer from the most exclusive boutiques. The art scene in Toorak is flourishing, with smaller studios are popping up all over the centre of town, and you can easily spend a day or two exploring them all! Once you've had your fill of culture, sit down for a long lunch and be "seen" at France Soir, The Botanical or The Millswyn.
For a look into life in the 1850s, stop by Como House and Garden. Once a residence of Melbourne's aristocracy, here you can explore the life and times for the fabulously rich and famous. Displaying one of Melbourne's most coveted gardens, the huge range of antiques and spectacular architecture of the historic mansion are simple amazing. Head to the coffee shop and grab a latte while you wish it was all yours.
The villages will bring you back to earth, though the boutiques in Toorak Village will still leave quite a dent in your credit card. Find exclusive designer fashions here, or in the neighbouring Hawksburn Village before grabbing dinner at one of the friendly cafes or local restaurants.
Definitely a place for the rich and famous, Toorak is only 5 kilometres southeast of Melbourne's CBD. Book your hotel in Toorak today and come for a taste of the high life.
