Look out for the striking political works of art enclosed in glass cabinets along the walkway as you head to the shops. Since 1990, a new exhibition is held on the first Friday of every month to allow for viewing of the artworks.
You will also find a number of shops down here including a newsagent, an internet cafe which also does laptop repairs, and a hairdresser. There is a coffee shop and ‘Sticky Institute’, a shop which makes hand-made magazines.
Access Campbell Arcade from Flinders Street Station; take the underground route until you get to the famous pink-tiled walls of the arcade.
