Arriving into the heart of Melbourne you will instantly feel its bustling vibe. It’s a vibe that’s charming, full of trend and bursting with funky cafes, trendy bars and world class restaurants. Not too mention the delectable street food on offer. There really is something for everyone. With its cobblestoned laneways and coffee drinking culture, Melbourne has a unique feeling that is European, yet distinctly Australian at the same time.
For starters, Melbournians are mad about their AFL. AFL (Australian Rules Football) is a funny game. At first glance, it appears there is no order to this sport. Chaotic even. But it’s actually super fast, extremely athletic and very exciting. If sport is not your thing and you’re into people watching, pop up bars, film festivals, live street art and live music, hang out in Federation Square, Melbourne’s large urban playground in the heart of the city. It’s definitely the town hangout hotspot.
After you’ve discovered the cities heart, head to Luna Park in St Kilda for a little vintage fair fun. Stroll along the promenade as the sun goes down and start your evening off with a cocktail by the sea. Bliss.
You know those epic nights out that will stay with you forever? Fitzroy in northern Melbourne is the place to be to create them. If you’re into funky bars, underground music, street festivals, art shows and all round awesome vibes, Fitzroy is possible the coolest place in Melbourne.
