The Area: Carlton, Melbourne

Dubbed Australia’s fashion capital, Melbourne boasts a strong coffee and café culture and a solid array of boutique fashion stores. Spend the day walking through Carlton’s streets, between the tree-lined alleyways, Italian cafés, and Lygon Court. Pack a romantic picnic and spend another day relaxing among the flowers and leafy trees in Carlton Gardens. Located within the gardens is the Royal Exhibition Building, which was completed in 1880 and was given a World Heritage listing in 2004.

Art and design lovers keep themselves entertained with a trip to Melbourne Museum, where they can view the latest post-modern architecture and innovative exhibitions that explore Victoria’s natural environment, culture and history. Those wanting to shop some more head into the CBD to Collins Street, the luxurious strand housing local markets, galleries, boutiques and cafés. Often regarded as Australia’s premier street, Collins Street is the domain of historical Victorian-era architecture, luxury boutiques including Prada, Dior and Cartier and the financial district of Melbourne. Head to the ‘Paris end’ of the street for a look at older-style buildings, all holding onto the memories of former days while still staying poised for daily tourists’ photo snaps.
