Home of the Melbourne Cup (the horse race that stops the nation, Flemmington Race Club), the AFL Grand Final & Boxing Day Cricket Test (Melbourne Cricket Ground)and Australian Tennis Open (Rod Laver Arena) Melbourne is a city of stately 19th-century buildings, alleys and arcades and tree-lined boulevards. Yet, at its centre is the strikingly modern Federation Square development, with plazas, bars, restaurants and cultural events along the Yarra River. In Southbank, the Melbourne Arts Precinct is site of Arts Centre Melbourne – a performing arts complex – and National Gallery of Victoria, displaying Australian and Indigenous art.
Melbourne is a labyrinth of cultured cobbled laneways and bustling boutique streets that prides its self on authentic original flair whether it be fashion food or the arts. With the arterial tram lines pumping vast numbers to their destinations, the web of cycle capillaries ergonomically entwined or the pedestrianised pavements with a steady stream of punters this city is alive at its very core! Discover Melbourne's secret laneways and rooftops, the cultural hub of Federation Square, buzzing bars, boutiques and eateries, and the iconic MCG. Experience St Kilda, the Royal Botanic Gardens, bohemian Brunswick Street and the nation-stopping excitement of the Spring Racing Carnival and the Melbourne Cup (the race that stops the nation). Join world class events such as the Australian Grand Prix, or experience the AFL Grand Final. Melbourne is the ideal location for a day trip to the Mornington Peninsula, the Yarra Valley or to visit the fairy penguins at Phillip Island.
Home of the Melbourne Cricket Ground and Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne is Australia's sporting and entertainment mecca. Just a tram ride away, the eclectic neighbourhoods on the city fringe offer endless possibilities. Take your fixie for a spin in the tooth-achingly cool northern suburbs Collingwood, Fitzroy, Brunswick and Northcote. Flex your plastic in retail meccas South Yarra, Prahran and Toorak. Take your beach towel (or yacht) to bayside St Kilda, Port Melbourne or South Melbourne, and go west for more fabulous food and beaches around Williamstown.
Arguably Australia’s most fashion-forward city, Melbourne is a mecca for fashionistas. While the city ticks all the usual boxes and most international brands as well as Australian designers can be found here, head out of the city to Chapel St in South Yarra for a complete ‘Melbourne’ shopping experience. Filled with boutiques and cafes, Chapel St cannot be beat as Melbourne’s top shopping experience. An honourable mention goes to Chadstone – the ‘fashion capital’ – however will require more travel time to reach.
