Article posted: March 17, 2022
Autumn is universally considered the best season in Melbourne.
The air is sweet and cool, the trees ablaze with brilliant colours, and in Camberwell Junction, the stores are brimming with new fashion looks, and the Camberwell Fresh Food Market is teeming with gorgeous new season fresh produce, while our world class chefs are showcasing new season dishes.
Autumn is a great time to be out and about in Camberwell Junction, and here’s just a few good reasons to take a stroll through Melbourne’s leading precinct for food, fashion and lifestyle shopping.
Spot the leaf garlands
The streets of Camberwell Junction are bursting with pops of yellow, red and gold as our autumn garlands are hung on tree surrounds throughout the precinct.
Celebrating the rich colours that mark the season, Camberwell Junction’s autumn leaf garlands are a sight to see and will delight all visitors, young and old.
Shop stylish autumn fashion
A new season means a new wardrobe update and this season there are key pieces you need to get your hands on – and they can all be found at Camberwell Junction.
As the days get cooler, every woman needs a coat, and whether you favour big and puffy or light and slimline, the only thing you need to know is that is has to be quilted. Yes, like a Chanel bag.
When it comes to women’s fashion, pleated miniskirts are a trend that is really taking off this season. Team them with thick woolen stockings or thigh-high boots.
It’s also time to ditch the sweatpants and slip into cargo pants (the brighter, the better), which are essentially as comfy as sweats but a little bit fancier.
Cut outs show no sign of slowing down either. We’re talking dresses, tops and jackets with entire panels missing, or sections cut away. Drafty, but stylish.
For the men, this autumn is all about slim-fit tailored suits, chunky and textured knitwear, and quilted puffer jackets. We told you quilting was the trend of the season!
With so many stores in one place, you don’t really need another reason to head down to Camberwell Junction, but in autumn shops across the precinct are ramping up their promotions and special offers. Make sure you don’t miss out – view the latest offers here.
Focus on health and wellness
One of the great joys of autumn is exercising outdoors, feeling the leaves crunching beneath your feet and the crisp air on your face.
But as the days get colder, you’ll want to move at least some of your exercise regime indoors – and Camberwell Junction has gyms and studios to suit every body and every stage of the fitness journey.

Savour seasonal food and dining
The shelves of Camberwell Junction’s restaurants and fresh food stores are brimming with new season produce from local growers – straight from the farm to your plate.
Whether it’s plump, ripe and fresh fruit and vegetables from Camberwell Fresh Food Market, a warm nourishing soup or focaccia overflowing with goodness at one of our cafes, or an exquisite meal prepared by an award-winning chef at a leading restaurant, Camberwell Junction is the place where food and drink are celebrated and shared.
