Gigs, gags and revelry
From sweaty punk and indie folk to electro, metal, house and dub step, Melbourne's got the noise you need. So shake your thing, bang your head, or just while away an evening in acoustic bliss. And when you're looking to switch things up, hit the comedy stores for a dose of the good medicine.
Big nights and slow mornings
If you like a city that stands out, stays up and sleeps in, you've come to the right place. Join in the colour and spectacle at festivals all year round. Take a detour through winding laneways and discover Melbourne's creative heart, and then resurface to brunch it with the best of them at breezy cafes from St Kilda to Brunswick.
Village life, city digs
Mix it with locals and visitors from across the world in the back alleys and beer gardens, rooftop bars and hole-in-the-wall restaurants across Melbourne. Study or work and feel right at home, or use the city as a base for your grand Victorian adventure.
