Melbourne Guide

Neighbourhood Overview


The CBD is the perfect base for first-time visitors to Melbourne.

St Kilda

Would you prefer to spend time on the Melbourne coast rather than the city? Have a look at hotels in St Kilda after booking your flights from Bundaberg to Melbourne. The eclectic beachfront neighbourhood is located on Port Phillip Bay and is just a tram ride away from the CBD. The main draw to St Kilda is its beach, and other things to do include Luna Park, St Kilda Botanical Gardens, and the restaurants and bars along Fitzroy Street and Carlisle Street. You can even spot little blue penguins – head to the end of the St Kilda Breakwater around sunset time.


Carlton borders the CBD to the north and is Melbourne’s “Little Italy” neighbourhood. It’s home to an incredible selection of authentic Italian restaurants, espresso bars, and gelato shops, most of which are concentrated along Lygon Street. Alongside the great food and drink, Carlton is within reach of some Melbourne icons like the Royal Exhibition Building and Melbourne Museum in Carlton Gardens and Queen Victoria Market. It’s a fun and centrally-located neighbourhood to stay in while travelling from Bundaberg to Melbourne.

Top Experiences for Visitors

Explore the city’s laneways

One of Melbourne’s claims to fame is its wide range of laneways. Each one is unique – some have cool cafes or hidden bars, and most feature colourful street art that changes all the time. A few of the top Melbourne laneways to visit include Hosier Lane, AC/DC Lane, Hardware Lane, and Degraves Street. Melbourne also has some more traditional lanes that date back to the Victorian era, like Block Arcade and Royal Arcade.

Walk through the Royal Botanic Gardens

The Royal Botanic Gardens are a nice place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city for a while. They feature more than 8,500 plant species, including some that are native to Victoria and Australia and others that come from other parts of the world. Places to visit within the gardens include Aboriginal Walk, Ornamental Lake, Fern Gully, and Southern China Collection. You can also visit the Shrine of Remembrance by heading to the southernwestern corner of the Royal Botanic Gardens.

Go wine tasting in the Yarra Valley

Victoria is home to one of Australia’s most popular wine regions – the Yarra Valley. It’s less than an hour from the city by car and makes for an amazing day trip while you’re holidaying from Bundaberg to Melbourne. There are more than 30 vineyards in the Yarra Valley, and you can visit many of them for tastings. Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Shiraz are the specialty wines of the region, but there are plenty of other varieties available to try too. You could do a self-guided tour of the Yarra Valley or book onto a guided wine tour departing from the city centre.
