If you like sportswear then Smith St is the place to go. From Adidas shoes to the outdoor equipments by Paddy Pallin, the street are filled with factory outlets and clearance stores that can satisfy your needs.
Iím from Sydney, & Iíve been to South Bank, because it has a Swatch watch shop. Iíve bought a few watches from there, & the Spencer St one. As Iíve only been to two the of them, I donít know which 1 is in fact the best one.
A little update:The Swatch shop on top of the station, (which is now Southern Cross Station of cause) is the same 1 that moved to Southbank, for the other Melbourne visitors. All Melbourne residents, would already know this of cause, if they're Swatch watch fans like myself.
