Discover more when you Play Melbourne
Melbourne is a labyrinth of laneways that contain hidden bars, galleries, live music venues, acclaimed restaurants and designer boutiques. It's also a city with a passionate love of sports and relishes any opportunity to party, boasting an action-packed calendar of events all year around.
The CBD comprises many precincts - enclaves with distinct charms. Some are only a lane or two, while others cover a suburb or a busy CBD street. Spend time experiencing the diversity of Melbourne’s offerings in the creative Flinders quarter, the city arcades, the arts and adjoining sports precincts and the theatre district. Visit some of the city's iconic shopping strips in Fitzroy, St Kilda, Carlton, Richmond, Toorak and South Yarra which are only a short tram ride from the city.
St Kilda Fitzroy Carlton
Melbourne's melting pot of cultures is reflected in its restaurants, cafés and bistros serving up a variety of delicious cuisines from delicious Asian-style hawker food to Michelin-starred restaurants. World-renowned restaurants plate up alongside cheap and cheerful eateries and quirky hole-in-the-wall cafés dedicated to the city's obsession with coffee.
Fonda Mexican is the best place to enjoy a flavour fiesta and for the best meatballs in town dine in at Meatball and Wine Bar. Next door, Thai diner Chin Chin is arguably one of Melbourne’s hardest places to get in to, but for good reason. Crispy school prawns and suckling pig pancakes are just some of the locals’ favourites.
