Melbourne itself is known for its food, atmospheric eating places, bars and shops and interesting street art.
We enjoyed its hip cafes and bars, including basement venues, and some restaurants overlooking the Yarra River.
The City Circle Tram is a free service around central Melbourne. It is a flat city and easy to get around by bike or foot. For more information go to www.thatsmelbourne.com.au
