Creativity, fashion and sophistication run rampant in Melbourne, with boutique galleries, rooftop bars and cosy cafés scattered around the city and surrounding areas. For a true taste of Melbourne's creative side, head along to the Rose Street Artists' Market in Fitzroy on a Saturday or Sunday and pick up some quirky jewellery or contemporary artwork.
Another obsession that's almost impossible to escape in Melbourne is sport. The home of Australian Rules Football has footy grounds dotted throughout, and everywhere you look are team colours and devoted fans. Don't miss an opportunity to go and watch an AFL game at the iconic MCG. Having previously hosted both the Olympic Games and Commonwealth Games, the city is dotted with sporting monuments and has an impeccable public transport infrastructure.
Be sure to escape the city at some point and take a short drive to the trendy beachside suburb of St Kilda. This is not your average coastal destination like the Gold Coast or Bondi. Instead you'll find a charming seaside vibe and a neighbourhood overflowing with character all year round, regardless of the weather.
