Nothing screams culture like St Kilda does. This vibrant, colourful, flamboyant, creative bayside town never ceases to amaze both the young and old. A stroll through Acland Street will have your eyes glancing all over the place, soaking up its unique vibe and trying to decide which cafe or bar to settle on. Nothing beats enjoying a delicious ice cream from “7 Apples” whilst vegging on the hill overlooking the iconic “Luna Park”, listening to the abstract yet wonderful sounds from the entertaining buskers. Be sure to check-in to “The Vineyard”, serving top notch food and cocktails all day and well into the night. Fitzroy Street is a must as well, featuring amazing restaurants and bars including “The Prince”. For fine bayside dining, a table at “Donovans” is essential. Don’t even think about skipping St Kilda beach on a warm day! Now that you’ve come this far, take a walk down the “St Kilda Pier” and visit the historic kiosk. If you are coming in February, attendance at “St Kilda Festival” is very necessary - one of the largest free music festivals in the world, featuring huge acts and fun family activities.
The inner suburb of Richmond is one of historic culture and style. Richmond is famous for its shopping, huge variety of food and drink, buzzing bars and nightlife, trendy street art, live music, and most importantly, the biggest sports stadium in the Southern Hemisphere. Swan Street, Bridge Road, and Victoria Road are some of the most compelling destinations you will ever find on a map. Be sure to visit “Friends of Mine” for a feed you will be wishing never ended. Fancy some live music? “The Corner Hotel” is one of Melbourne’s best intimate music venues, featuring the best raw local talent as well as international superstars. Need some air? Enjoy a drink at its own rooftop courtyard. A walk down the road to “The Precinct” is essential for when the sun goes down. It wouldn’t be a trip to Melbourne without visiting the “Mountain Goat Brewery” and studying the street art. Richmond caters for everyone - interested in cooking? Take a fun class at “Otao Kitchen”. Want to watch a play? Visit the “Owl and the Cat Theatre”. Richmond’s most prized possession, however, is the mighty “Melbourne Cricket Ground”. The atmosphere in this 100,000 seat stadium is unbeatable, whether it is viewing Melbourne’s home grown “Australian Football League” or watching the Aussies take the Ashes in a cricket game against England. Neighbouring the “MCG” is, of course, the home of the “Australian Open” tennis tournament, Roger Federer’s playground for the last 15 years. When all you want is some peace and quiet, Richmond caters for this as well. The “Royal Melbourne Botanical Gardens” are nearby, the perfect place to relax and explore nature at its finest. Richmond is only one train stop away from the city, but why not enjoy the picturesque walk along the “Yarra River” instead?
South Yarra / Prahran
These two neighbouring suburbs are top destination dwelling places for both new visitors to Melbourne and for those who wish to have a home away from home. South Yarra features stunning views of the city with river vibes while Prahran is abundant with rich culture and lifestyle. Both have a huge range of shopping, food, art, and nightlife districts catering from the extreme upmarket to the hip and trendy. The infamous yet extremely desirable Chapel St has a history and legend of its own. Take the day to explore its world class dining, shops, and bars, including “Speakeasy”, “The Emerson” and the “Prahran Hotel”. When the sun goes down, do I even need to mention “Revolver Upstairs”? Be sure to venture down Greville St and Commercial Road, while catching a flick at “The Jam Factory”. For some contemporary entertainment, see what’s on at “Chapel off Chapel”. Districts aside, The “Queen Victoria Gardens” feature magnificent parklands, while the “Prahran Market” sources the freshest produce. Google the “Melbourne Capital City Trail” for one of the best walking experiences the city of Melbourne has to offer. If the finest of fine dining is your thing, you can't go passed South Yarra’s Toorak Road. “Squires Loft” and will have you repeatedly telling your friends at home you just had the best steak of your life. When all's said and done, be sure to wind down at “Fawkner Park”.
