Local nameBlock Arcade
LocationCity of Melbourne, Australia

The Block Arcade is a shopping arcade in the central business district of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Constructed between 1891 and 1893, it is considered one of the late Victorian era's finest shopping arcades and ranks among Melbourne's most popular tourist attractions.

Designed by architect David C. Askew, the arcade takes inspiration from the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele in Milan, and remains one of Melbourne's most richly decorated interior spaces, replete with mosaic tiled flooring, glass canopy, wrought iron and carved stone finishings. The arcade proper is L-shaped, connecting Collins Street at the south end to Elizabeth Street on the west.
