Ridgeway Place

Little Collins St, Melbourne

Free

Ridgeway Place runs alongside the towering brick wall of the Melbourne Club, the city’s oldest men’s club.

Formed in 1838, the club boasts former prime ministers, world-renowned artists and mining magnates as its members. Behind the wall is a private English-styled garden, home to the oldest and largest plane tree in Victoria.

Also down Ridgeway Place is the Lyceum Club, a women-only club with a focus on art and culture.

If you have a membership for neither, enjoy a coffee at one of the cafes instead. Ridgeway Place is a convenient thoroughfare and will take you from Collins Street to Little Collins Street.
