Melbourne is always busy, bustling and never goes quiet, even in the depths of winter. It’s famous for festivals (comedy, art, film – we could go on!), markets, gallery events, theatre, concerts, sporting events and so much more – you’ll never be bored in Melbourne.
If you head in to the CBD, you’ll be spoilt for choice with where to eat, where to get your coffee and where to drink and have a good time. There’s rooftop bars, hole in the wall bars hidden down graffiti covered laneways, bars with standing room only, bars in the middle of the Yarra River, bars with video games to keep you entertained for hours and bars hidden behind bookcases. In case you can’t tell, Melbourne likes a good bar or two.
Shoppers will also love Melbourne. There's large department stores and shopping complexes, designer label stores, shops with one-of-a-kind pieces, second hand stores with vintage finds, markets featuring the latest in home wares, book stores and sporting stores, so whatever you're after, Melbourne will have it.
If do you need some inspiration, ask our staff – many have been here for years and can give you insider knowledge to experience Melbourne like a local.
