Melbourne, Vic, Australia

There's quite a rivalry between Sydneysiders and Melbournites, I'm currently spending a fair amount of time in Melbourne for work and while I get part of the argument (good cafe culture, European feel), in my opinion you can't beat Sydney harbour.

However DH and I did manage to fill in our weekend with the best Melbourne had to offer (although we didn't manage to get to an AFL game).

Quest Apartments SXY in South Yarra is a great base, just outside the city (within walking distance), and on the door of Chapel Street and Tourk Road.

  •  Pizza and bar snacks at Little Creatures , Fitzroy on the Friday night
  • Huxtaburgers , Collingwood for a very late night dinner - DH had the original and I had the Denise - the spicy version - unfortunately I ate too quickly to take pictures!
  • A late breakfast/brunch at Kazbar, Chapel Street
  • Hunkey Dory for fish and chips (or squid, salad and rice!)

  • Check out Federation Square
  • Have a wonder down Chapel Street for high end fashion at one end and vintage wear down the other
  • Catch the tram out to the Queen Victoria Markets
  • Have a coffee at Docklands, with great views of the water and city skyline
  • Enjoy the Art Deco buildings
