Afghan Bazaar Cultural Precinct

The Afghan Bazaar Cultural Precinct offers a unique shopping experience.

Located 30km from Melbourne's CBD, the Afghan Bazaar, in and around Thomas Street Dandenong, is Melbourne's only recognised Afghan precinct.

Dandenong train station and bus interchange is within walking distance. There is plenty of on-street parking and a multi-level car park in the heart of the precinct, making your shopping experience easily accessible via public transport or car. 

There are approximately 20 shops in the Afghan Bazaar featuring speciality goods from the regions and communities of Afghanistan.

Discover the wonderful food on offer which includes warm tasty Afghan bread cooked in traditional clay ovens or kebabs cooked over hot coals.

Be tempted by an extensive range of authentic fruit and nuts, groceries, sweets and Halal meat. For something different browse through traditional clothing, jewellery, rugs and musical instruments.

Visit the Afghan Bazaar and discover everything that is Afghan.
