Can’t miss the Princes Bridge. Iconic views of the city with the bridge from Southbank and Flinders Street Station is right across on the other side.

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the

corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
