How We See Melbourne
Live it up with midweek cocktails, Friday night footy, Sunday brunch or gallery hopping, Melbourne has a magnetic mix for exploration. Australia’s cultural hub, where the laneways fuel the energy of the city, from bold street art to hole-in-the-wall coffee haunts, hidden bars and original restaurants, limitless options await. Got wheels? More lies on the city’s doorstep with surf spots, wineries, and more foodie havens to seek out. This is a city that offers up back-lane access to the epic moments.
