Causeway Lane (also known as The Causeway) is a street in Melbourne, Victoria. It is a short, quiet and narrow open laneway, running between Bourke Street Mall and Little Collins Street between Elizabeth Street and Swanston Street in the central business district of Melbourne. Located in the heart of the shopping precinct, the Causeway is currently flanked by some small boutique shops, indoor and outdoor cafes and sushi bars. The lane is notable for the heritage listed former Union Bank (seen on the left), a tall curved palazzo styled building constructed in the 1920s which has a mezzanine entrance at the corner of the lane. The building is now occupied by Laurent, an upmarket French patisserie. The lane is bitumen and lined by the plain sides of some heritage buildings. It is closed to all vehicular traffic.

Photography been a longtime hobby that has now become an obsessive passion. I am fairly eclectic in my choice of subjects, and try to see beauty in most things. Thank you for dropping by my site and I welcome any feedback and tips.

    Looks warm and inviting, are the tiles wet or just shiny? Awesome capture :)))

  • Thanks for the lovely comment and the fave Elaine. The tiles were wet, this shot was only taken last Friday and it was hot, really humid and raining. It’s certainly as strange summer we are having.
