Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
Spontaneously did this as we'd some time to kill. It's free, it's an old style tram and it skirts the CBD so, if you've just arrived, a good way to get orientated. You get a commentary too with suggestions at each stop.
One of my favourite things about Melbourne are the laneways and arcades. If you want interesting shops, cafes and restaurants, this is where to head. Tucked away off the main streets and mostly traffic free. The Block is proper old school glamour with absolutely beautiful shop windows to browse and a wonderful gelato shop. The tea rooms looks fantastic too....
We decided to take a tour around the library, which you can do either self-guided or with a guide at certain times. We arrived for a Ned Kelly tour, which was very informative and lasted around an hour. After which we explored the various levels of the library building & viewing the various amazing historical exhibitions about life in Melbourne...
Located on the corned ahead from the Flinders Street Station and can't be missed with its massive facade that once dominated the city landscape .
It has been here for nearly 175 years
There are many tours for visitors including the ghost tours ..so take your pick it closes by 5 p.m.
We saw this on trip,advisor and wanted to try. It’s wasn’t to find but worth it. Little cafe with very interesting French food. Lovely atmosphere and yummy food . We had galettes and quite impressed with flavours.Sat outside as all table full inside.Very enjoyable.
The food and service at Tipo 00 is amazing and such good value. I really enjoyed not having to choose my dinner and every course being a surprise. Everything we ate was delicious and one of our party has celiacs and was fantastically catered for too. They also made some great wine recommendations. My favourite was desert, the chocolate dish...

reviewed 2 days ago by Jon G
I really enjoyed showing off this Armenian restaurant to an interstate visitor after my first visit. 2nd visit was just as good. This time we had the 7 course degustation for $74 and $50 matching wines. Barely finished the desserts as there was so much great food. Haley was fantastic in her knowledge of wine and I certainly learnt a...
A beautiful boutique hotel. Fantastic design features and lighting. Great comfort and wonderful attention to detail. The staff were outstanding - they made every effort to make our stay enjoyable. We will definitely come back.
This was the 5 th time we have stayed at QT and we love coming back. Our rooms are modern and comfortable, but most of all the staff are amazing, so happy and a delight to deal with. We will be back again
What a find!
We booked directly with the hotel and were impressed with everything about our stay. A beautiful secure building in a fantstic location. When we arrived we discovered our apartment had been upgraded. It was clean, modern and perfect for 5 days in the city. Starting the day with the mezzanine breakfast and ending with complimentary wine hour...
St. Jerome's provided us with a unique way to experience Melbourne. After adventuring the city we spent the afternoon on the rooftop soaking up the sun with a glass of wine and great company, what more could you want really? Beds were SUPER comfy and staff were very friendly!! Eye masks and ear plugs are provided to ensure a relaxing...
This is a decent hotel with good proximity to the city centre and the Queen Victoria markets. The bed was very comfortable, the breakfast buffet had a good selection and the room pleasant. I’d stay here again.
