Melbourne is a city serious about its food. Restaurants, cafes and bars can be found lining main thoroughfares, hidden down laneways, perched high on rooftops, tucked down in basements and everywhere in-between. Many of the country’s most passionate and innovative chefs call Melbourne home. Ben Shrewry’s Attica was recently crowned Australia’s top restaurant in the prestigious World’s 50 Best Restaurants list (number 32) and Dan Hunter’s Brae in Regional Victoria was awarded number 44. Dining destination precincts such as Flinders Lane in the CBD, Smith Street in Collingwood and Gertrude Street in Fitzroy, are home to the most awarded culinary and bar hotspots in Melbourne.
There are more than 1000 fashion retailers within the city centre alone. The city's myriad of laneways and arcades uncover charming boutiques, while department stores and shopping centres continue to raise the bar. Explore the inner-city shopping centres such as Emporium Melbourne and Melbourne Central and find the best international brands in Bourke Street Mall with Zara and H&M’s Australian flagship store, as well as Australian department stores Myer and David Jones.
