Visit

St Kilda
St Kilda is one of Melbourne’s beach side suburbs and does a frenetic Friday night whirl with laidback Saturday morning style featuring extra panache. Wander the esplanade to take in the ocean breezes, rollerblade along the beachside or try Acland Street for a fulfilling breakfast or a morning tea of delectable cakes.

Acland Street a land of tastes, cakes and fashion, where it’s Sunday seven days a week! It is a bustling, vibrant street with an eclectic mix of restaurants, wine bars and continental cake shops. During the day the streets are lined with people drinking lattes, at night they’re buzzing with clubbers and night owls.

South Yarra
South Yarra is renowned for elegance and style. Toorak Road offers countless boutiques, jewellers, tailors and exclusive homeware outlets, while Chapel Street is slightly livelier and an irresistible temptation for the fashion conscious. For some serious people watching, take a table at Café Domo, Pieroni or Chinois Café Bar and Restaurant. The Continental Café offers everything from breakfast to late night jazz and blues, and Caffe e Cucina gives you an Italian-based experience you won’t forget.

Greville Street is a small cosmopolitan strip that would sit easily in any one of the great cities of the world. Located off Chapel Street Prahran, adjacent to the Prahran Town Hall, Greville Streets exhibits a veritable gallery of amazing shops that offers something for everyone. Rich, colourful fashions, eclectic gifts, books and jewellery shops, stylish salons, and music stores open their doors seven days a week.
