All About Melbourne

When to Visit

Melbourne is known for its unpredictable day-to-day weather, but summers (December to early March) in Victoria’s capital can get extremely hot at times. Despite the heat, this period is when many of the city’s major events take place, such as the Australian Open and Moomba Festival. A great alternative is to visit in the fall when the weather is cooler and the city is beautifully adorned with autumn leaves.

Getting Around

Melbourne’s extensive public transport network makes it easy to reach most parts of the city. The city’s trams offer a straightforward way to travel around the inner city, especially within the free tram zone covering the Central Business District (CBD). The City Loop and suburban train lines also provide easy access to various areas, with buses, including the convenient Skybus to the airport, filling in the gaps.

Traveler Tips

For dining in the CBD, the historic Chinatown area along Little Bourke Street is a reliable choice, offering options for all budgets. Empress of China is a great spot for dumplings, and it allows you to bring your own drinks, which you can purchase from nearby liquor stores. The surrounding laneways are filled with bars, ranging from the eclectic Berlin Bar to the laid-back Ferdydurke.
