Best hotels, facts and information in Melbourne
Known for its eclectic arts and culture, Melbourne is Australia’s hip, trendsetting city in the southeastern state of Victoria along Port Phillip Bay. Downtown Melbourne—the Central Business District, or CBD—is broken up into distinct neighborhoods with a range of attractions, art venues, restaurants and bars to appeal to the tastes of any visitor. Visit Melbourne’s historical quarter on Collins Street where you’ll find designer shops and classic Gothic architecture. Gallery hop along Flinders Lane or stroll along the Southbank’s promenade on the Yarra River, which offers many fine dining options.
In the city fringe, visit swanky St Kilda, a seaside district with high-end and second-hand shopping and classy restaurants on Fitzroy and Acland streets. The Richmond district offers authentic Greek and Vietnamese cuisine; you’ll find Little Saigon here. In bohemian Fitzroy, find art galleries, hipster cafés and great bars and nightlife; walk down Brunswick Street to get a feel for this bustling neighborhood.
Melbourne hosts a wide range of internationally acclaimed arts events throughout the year. Top events include the Melbourne International Film Festival, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival and the Melbourne Fringe Festival. Outside Melbourne, explore the Yarra Valley, a thriving wine region and visit attractions like the expansive Werribee Open Range Zoo for a close look at zebras, hippos and rare southern white rhinos.
