Harbour Town is a popular retail destination in Melbourne, offering 2 levels of laneway shopping with over 90 direct outlet and speciality stores. Located in Docklands and easily accessible by car and tram, it is best known for discounted prices across homewares, gifts, sportswear, jewellery and fashion brands.

Unknown to some, Harbour Town also offers entertainment and attractions such as O'Brien Group Arena, the largest ice arena in Australia and Melbourne Star, the Southern Hemisphere's only giant observation wheel. It also hosts many activities throughout the year including Christmas celebrations and school holiday fun for the kids. This winter, Harbour Town is serving a schedule of children activities from June to August. Here is a quick overview of what's in store to keep the kids entertained while you do some shopping and grab a bite from the many eateries in Harbour Town Melbourne.
