Travellers and activities

Melbourne for partygoers

Melbourne has come a long way in the last 2 decades and shattered its previous reputation as a staid, stuffy city. These days, you can take your pick of great restaurants at 1am, see late-night gigs and party until the sun comes up. St. Kilda is Melbourne’s famous nightlife area and the heart of Melbourne’s wild side, this is where it will be. Start your night at a height, on a rooftop bar such as the hugely popular Naked in the Sky, and watch as the lights switch on across Melbourne’s cityscape. Lubed up, head to one of the mega clubs such as Magic Mountain Saloon, which hosts amazing club nights every weekend featuring the best of Australia’s electronic music scene.

Melbourne for shopaholics

Melbourne is renowned for its world-class shopping. Let’s go from top end down. With its superior range of high-quality clothing, Chapel Street is the place to go for local and international celebrities, as is Collins Street with its plethora of fancy brands. Bourke Street Mall is a pedestrianized section of the street boasting historical Victorian architecture and the finest, top of the shelf brands. For a bohemian street feel and alternative fashion stores, head straight to Brunswick Street with its chic street fashion items at nominal rates and great value clothes.

Melbourne has the largest tram system outside of Europe, and the fourth largest in the world overall. Undoubtedly the best way to get around!
