Melbourne is one of the best cities to visit, with it’s neat grid-like CBD, the mix of old buildings with gleaming sky scrapers, the fancy rooftop bars and the gritty laneways with small, sometimes hidden bars and the many diverse restaurants to tempt you. Berlin Bar, a small bar on Corrs Lane requires you to climb some stairs and then ring the door bell. The staff will let you into a space which is a split into austere East Berlin and opulent West Berlin and you will have to choose where to spend your evening.
A visit to Melbourne is not complete without visiting the food markets. Both Queen Victoria Markets and the South Melbourne Markets are close to the CBD are a food lover’s paradise.
Fitzroy Gardens is a lush green sanctuary on the east side of the CBD.
NGV International in worth a visit with many artworks by big name French impressionist painters as well as many modern works.
The State Library of Victoria is a beautiful old building and is magnificent on the inside as well. Best of all, it is being used by lots of students, industriously studying away in these magnificent surrounds.
One of the best things about travelling is happening randomly upon something weird or wonderful, such as these street sculptures.
