Melbourne, Victoria

Style: City Chic

Melbourne is an international cultural mecca that draws you in with its style and elegance.

Lose yourself in art, heritage and design or spend some time strolling through famous laneways, sampling strong coffee and tasty bites that provides you with more sustenance to continue shopping in the endless boutiques!

Visit galleries, museums and hidden restaurants and cafes that can be found in every turn you make.

Indulgence goes hand in hand with comfort, and Melbourne wants you to be as comfortable as possible, with an abundance of award-winning day spas to spoil yourself with.

Once you’ve shopped yourself silly and pampered yourself pretty, head to a charming rooftap bar or restaurant to toast to a fantastic holiday!
