In a Europe down under way. Although you won't find natural spectaculars, you'll love the ornate Victorian-era architecture, leafy, established boulevards and the city's gorgeous trams. There's also loads of contemporary elegance like at Federation Square. And with so many locals on bicycles, it has that grand old-world feel, made new.
Sick of mall culture? Fed up with chain stores? Melbourne is the antidote. With over 12 big markets, there's everything from eclectic fashion to fresh produce. Don't miss the huge Queen Victoria Market (The Vic) with more than 1000 stalls. Foodies head for Prahran Market, fashionistas hit Greville Street and art lovers wouldn't miss St. Kilda's Sunday market for all the reprints in the world.
