Flinders Lane

Back in the 1860s, writes eMelbourne, Flinders Lane was “the chosen location of mercantile houses, importers, brewers, timber yards and wholesalers … and its network of side lanes and alleys bustled with traffic and were commonly congested with travellers' buggies backed into shops, or by the lifting or lowering of boxes, sacks and other heavy goods.” Today Flinders Lane is a serious culinary destination, says Broadsheet. “Restaurants have come and gone, but the eight-block stretch remains a dining powerhouse, the Spring Street end in particular” where, says The Food Pornographer, Cumulus Inc is an essentially Flinders Lane experience.
