Queen Victoria Market is outstanding for its large variety of goods and products including the reasonable prices. A huge location that easily takes a few hours to browse through on a leisurely walk.

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
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You

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