Celebrate autumn 2023 in Camberwell Junction
Article posted: April 4, 2023
During autumn, Camberwell Junction becomes a feast for the senses.
Trees are ablaze with vibrant shades of red, orange and yellow, leaves crunch beneath our feet on our morning walk, the aroma of freshly brewed coffee and pastries straight from the oven fill the air.
Store windows come alive with new season fashion and homewares, and market vendors proudly spruik their fresh seasonal produce.
Autumn is a wonderful time to be out and about in Camberwell Junction, taking a stroll through Melbourne’s leading shopping precinct for food, fashion and lifestyle.
Here’s how to enjoy the best of it.
New season fashion
This autumn, the two words on every fashionista’s lips are suits and sets. To the relief of everyone who struggles to pull a look together for work, mix and match takes a back seat and makes way for complete outfits.
Suits are a little more tailored this year. Think pants with bold front creases, jackets with cinched waistlines, and was that a hint of shoulder pad? Yes, it was! On warmer days you can do away with the jacket – just make sure the shirt is made to match the pants.
We’ll all be seeing red this autumn, and it needs to be fire-engine red. We’re talking red shoes, handbags and, for the bold of heart, red suits.
For the evening, the black dress is back but it’s not little. Evening looks are throwing off a romantic vibe – long, flowing, and ever-so-slightly gothic.
This season is also circling back to circle skirts – you know, those knee-length skirts, big on fabric and even bigger on swirl. Think: Pink Ladies in Grease. For the classic 50s look, team with kitten heels, but to put a modern take on the circle skirt, add knee-high boots.
Camberwell Junction is packed with boutique fashion stores that have all your new season looks covered in the one location.
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.

Embrace seasonal food
A new season always brings with it an abundance of fresh, in-season produce in Camberwell Junction – and in autumn, they’re all staples of our favourite comfort dishes.
Head to Camberwell Fresh Food Market to find beans, carrots, potatoes, eggplant and mushrooms – which are all back on the menu, with a multitude of yummy ways to enjoy them.
Home-made gourmet pizzas and pies will always spark joy in your family and friends, and quiches and tarts are great mid-week delights.
Otherwise, head to a local cafe or restaurant to find hearty soups and curries, or dishes featuring baked figs, rhubarb and apples, served with a healthy dollop of cream, for a truly satisfying autumn dessert.
Autumn is a season of celebration and commemoration, marked by family get-togethers and dinner-table events. Easter is a four-day feast of fresh new season produce and Mother’s Day is a lovely chance to dip into recipe books of old and celebrate our loved ones by serving them home-cooked meals.
