About Melbourne

Shopping

Shopping - that's Melbourne. From the urban to classic, boutique to department store, Melbourne's retail therapy is alive with international labels, Australian designers, and emerging trends.



Attractions

There's always a thrill to be had when entering Melbourne's laneways with their famous boutiques, cafes, numerous restaurants, and unique bars.

Discover Melbourne's international artworks, soaring symphonies, and classical ballet inside the city's bulging arts pocket.

Experience Melbourne's beating pulse as you walk down St Kilda Road, the city's tree-lined main artery, tasty bakeries, lush parks, and well-known landmarks.

Take a stroll, have a picnic, or simply situate yourself in the parks, gardens, and art spaces near the famous Yarra River.



Food & Wine

Many of Melbourne's precincts have a culinary character all their own, from the Greek atmosphere of Lonsdale Street or Carlton's 'Little Italy', to the array of choices in Chinatown. Take a stroll over the Yarra River to Southgate or a quick tram ride to Docklands, where you can enjoy striking views with great food and wine.

The Yarra Valley Wine Region is the beating heart of Victoria's food and wine culture. Family owned cellar doors, award winning restaurants, and a beautiful range of wines make this any gourmet traveller's playground.



Culture

There's a lot do in Melbourne. Whether you're after bars and cafes or galleries and boutiques, you'll find it here. With regular medal-winning appearances in the Economist's Most Livable Cities list (taking the top award three times since 2002), Melbourne has a right to be boastful. But despite its temperate climate, safe streets, cosmopolitan lifestyle and beautiful setting, locals remain low-key about their city.

Time Zone

Melbourne is on Greenwich Means Time (GMT) +10hrs or Eastern Standard Time (EST).



Weather

Melbourne enjoys beautiful summers, glorious springs, mild autumns, and crisp winters.



GST Information
