Cool, creative and fuelled by rich, locally brewed coffee, Melbourne is a hive of non-stop culture and cuisine. And with a calendar packed full of arts and world-class sporting events, it’s easy to see why it’s consistently voted the world’s most liveable city. Discover its allure for yourself on a holiday to Melbourne.
From Japan and Greece to Lebanon and Vietnam, people from all over the world have made Melbourne their home – which is great news for foodies, as the resulting mix of cuisine has transformed the city into a serious culinary destination. Wander the hidden laneways and you’ll find a treasure trove of quirky bars, coffee shops and restaurants.
When you’re not eating, hit the shops: Melbourne is packed with all sorts of spending opportunities. Pop by Flinders Lane for local brands and boutiques, and Block Arcade for a high-end shopping centre experience. If markets are more your thing, check out Queen Victoria Market or the Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market.
Alternatively, you can spend your time exploring the city’s many museums and galleries, from international and indigenous art at The National Gallery of Victoria to the many artefacts of Melbourne Museum. Or, you can simply wander around the city and see what you chance upon – street art has been growing in Melbourne steadily for years. The vibrant murals on Hosier Lane are a treat.
And then, there’s all the sport you could possibly wish for. You name it, Melburnians love it, from cricket and tennis to horseracing and Formula 1. It’s so embedded in the culture of the city that daily life centres around sporting events, with extra holidays and lively big screen gatherings at Federation Square. Of course, Australian Rules Football is at the heart of it all. Sports capital of the world? You bet.
