Live it up in Melbourne

1. Brunswick St, Fitzroy

Loud and proud, a fashion and music hub, dig for vintage clothes and obscure vinyl or bar hop down back lanes and up to rooftops for city views.

2. St Kilda Foreshore

For a seaside spark, walk along palm-lined boardwalks and you’ll soon find yourself sipping a margarita at one of the beach front bars and restaurants.

3. Melbourne CBD

W Melbourne is in the thick of the CBD, with an electric array of clubs, bars and eateries. Turn any corner and you'll find street-art-plastered laneways which house some of the city’s best kept secrets.

4. Carlton

Say "Ciao" to Lygon Street- Melbourne's Little Italy. Where the city’s coffee culture kicked off, and where you’ll get your double shot espresso and bowl of pasta done in such a way that it would make the Roman’s proud.

Ultimate Access To Melbourne
