 Mystery surrounds the death of a woman whose body was found in Melbourne's Chinatown.

A member of the public found the body at the intersection of Little Bourke Street and Celestial Avenue about 6.30am on Wednesday.

"My very early reading of that is she was [already] deceased but I can't confirm that at the moment, we're still in the early planning stages," Victoria Police Acting Superintendent Craig Peel told reporters.

"A member of the public did call triple-0 and reported the incident."

Supt Peel said the cause of death remained unclear, and the woman's identity had not yet been confirmed or her next-of-kin notified.
