Dive in to discover the distinct fortes and flavours of Melbourne destinations.

Spend some time in the city centre and you'll discover it's neatly divided into little pockets for you to explore. Find art, bars and restaurants up and down in the laneways, retail therapy for any budget in Bourke and Collins streets, and creative outlets on show in Flinders Quarter. St Kilda Road means galleries and gardens, while neighbouring Yarra Precinct and Docklands deliver waterside views by the boatload.

Just a tram ride away, the eclectic neighbourhoods on the city fringe offer endless possibilities. Take your fixie for a spin in the tooth-achingly cool northern suburbs Collingwood, Fitzroy, Brunswick and Northcote.  Flex your plastic in retail meccas South Yarra, Prahran and Toorak. Take your beach towel (or yacht) to bayside St Kilda, Port Melbourne and South Melbourne, and go west for more fabulous food and beaches.
