Known for its live music, incredible arts scene, inspired restaurant culture, and secret laneways, Melbourne’s an Aussie hospitality hub with a quirky personality.
Flights to Melbourne
The city’s skyline tells the story of the variety that lies beneath it, where gritty industrial buildings give way to lush public parks at almost every turn. You’ll be awestruck by the sheer quality of street and civic art on display too.
Culinary enthusiasts are sure to have their minds blown here. International diners and chefs are drawn in by the experimental dining scene, while food trucks such as The Snag Society and Mama Van keep the locals munching on both classic Aussie and international barbecue options.
Spend a few minutes in this style capital and you’ll have your phone out, snapping photos of passing fashionistas for your newly-founded street style blog. A sea of black clothing is punctuated by fun, frivolous touches, evident in Melbourne’s many independent labels and boutiques. Curated stores like Smith Street’s Somebuddy Loves You will give you a fix of curated Australian and Kiwi designer wear, but you still have all the well known international stores if the local stuff isn’t cutting it.
Surrounded by beaches, edged by forests and mountains and brimming with creative energy, Melbourne is a city waiting to be discovered – so why not get started now?
