The Causeway

The Causeway is a narrow laneway that connects the Bourke Street Mall to Little Collins Street on the block between Elizabeth and Swanston streets. It was previously known as Craigs Lane, which in 1895 was the location of the Mechanic's Hotel. Previous occupants in Craigs Lane included a carpenter and cabinetmaker. The Causeway is lined with cafes and restaurants, and closed to all vehicular traffic.
