Official site for Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Eat and drink your way through Victoria, from the renowned wineries of the Mornington Peninsula and Yarra Valley to Melbourne's pop-up restaurants and the Murray's scenic riverside eateries. Tantalise the senses at inner city pubs, laneway restaurants, hatted dining rooms and homely country hotels. And wash it all down with a pint from a rustic craft brewery.
City at night
Stake out the city to find everything from Mexicana, Spanish tapas and Chinatown delights to coffee dens, rooftop bars and modern Indian cuisine. Chat with locals over beers and a steak at an inner city pub, settle in for an indulgent eight course degustation menu, or choose a direction and hit the road for a weekend of indulgence.

From cool climate varietals and rosés to full bodied reds, Victoria is rich with independent wineries producing a diverse range of wines.
There are few places more aptly named than Andrew McConnell's Asian eating sensation and its mouthwatering Chinese, Japanese and Korean morsels.
