What an amazing range of international food, so many flavours and options that it was so hard to choose just one meal so we had 3 and rolled back to our apartment. It’s a must thing-to-do if you’re ever visiting Melbourne. Highly recommend.

This is a great, cheap entertainment during the summer months in Melbourne. The market has every kind of food you could want, drinks and great music. It's a great way to spend a few (or more) hours on a summer evening.

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
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

Usually you have to arrive 3 hrs before your flight departure time. Best bet would be to check details with the airline you’re flying with

As I understand it the Victoria Market will be open on the 24th however if it is; it will possibly be the busiest place in Melbourne!
