About Melbourne

A stage for some of Australia’s greatest sporting and cultural moments, Melbourne wows its visitors with Victorian-era architecture, elegant streetscapes, leafy inner-city gardens and cultural institutions.

Things to do

Join thousands of locals at the heart of Melbourne’s thriving arts and theatre scene, Federation Square, which is surrounded by Melbourne’s top art institutions.

You can also watch award-winning plays at Melbourne Theatre Company or see works by Australia’s top contemporary artists at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art.

Simply wander around the CBD to discover designer labels and one-of-a-kind boutiques, such as Sandro Paris and Keshett.

Explore the city’s first-class cafe culture on Fitzroy and Acland streets, and at sunset head to St Kilda Beach, an easy 20-minute drive away, for dinner at one of the beachfront restaurants. St Kilda is the perfect coastal suburb, home to artisan sellers, fairy penguins along the pier and the historic theme park, Luna Park.

Experience Melbourne’s famous nightlife at unique bars, such as The Toff in Town, a lively bar with signature cocktails and cosy booths in Art Deco train carriages. Melbourne is a true 24-hour city with a range of late-night dining and bar options, including live music venues, DJ clubs and hip hole-in-the-wall whiskey and boutique beer bars. Highlights include Melbourne’s rock hub, Ding Dong Lounge, and the 24-hour American-inspired Butchers Diner.

For a quiet escape wander through colourful and diverse natural landscapes at the Royal Botanic Gardens or the Fitzroy Gardens. Time your visit for one of Melbourne’s year-round blockbuster events, from Broadway musicals and international performing artists to music festivals and national sporting events, including the AFL Grand Final.
