Sydney Road is Melbourne's longest continuous shopping strip. The gold rush in the 1850s caused the street to flourish as many set up shop to supply miners on their trek north to the gold fields. This development built new hotels that still pour beers today. Now, Sydney road is full of culture, with many places to eat, drink and shop. There is a middle eastern vibe to the street, which means relaxing spot and a great kebab is never far away.
