Where to stay in Melbourne

Visitors to Melbourne are never short of places to stay in one of the most vibrant cities in Australia. The capital of the state of Victoria is home to world-class sporting events such as the Australian Open tennis tournament and the F1 Australian Grand Prix and regularly attracts over half a million visitors a year.

There are many areas to stay from the city center and central business district to the more chilled environs of the beach front at St Kilda but no matter where you choose Melbourne's public transport will get you smoothly around the city.

The Myki smartcard allows flexible travel on trains, trams and buses with Melbourne also offering a free City Circle Tram service around the center of the city and past some of its major attractions. Car rental in Melbourne is also a popular choice thanks to the city's proximity to the Great Ocean Road.

I love Melbourne. Great food, and culture with the Mornington Peninsula and the Great Ocean Road just outside town.

Known for its street art and alleyways, but also a stove’s throw a way from good hikes and surfing, Melbourne is not to be missed.
