Monocle Travel Guide To Melbourne
We're super excited to be featured in the Melbourne Monocle Guide!!
With its picture-perfect terrace houses, enviable cultural hotspots and more sleek coffee shops than you can shake a bag of finely ground beans at, it’s little wonder that Melburnians regularly claim their bayside city to be the most liveable in the world. Add to the mix a first-rate food scene and an abounding wine region on its doorstep and you may just find yourself agreeing with the Melburnians loving their city.
The Monocle Travel Guide to Melbourne will lead you down our favourite laneways, drop by the cutting-edge galleries shaking up the city’s art scene and show you where to marvel at modernist architecture. We’ve also rounded up the independent retailers stocking the most covetable Aussie-made take-homes and sifted through the city’s cafés, restaurants and bars to find the finest establishments in which to order a perfectly poured flat white, top-notch tucker and a light and peppery glass of pinot noir.
Melbourne’s weather may be erratic at best – the old adage of the city cycling through four seasons in one day is one to be heeded – but we’ll give you plenty of reasons to hit the streets come rain, shine or hammering hail.
Monocle reports from around the globe. As its editors and correspondents dart from city to city, they get to know the best places to rest their heads, stretch their limbs, and kick back with a contact in a hard-to-find cocktail bar. That information is now available in The Monocle Travel Guide Series: a line-up of titles that speaks to readers in an informed but informal way about everything from architecture to art, late-night bars to early-morning markets. Designed to be compact and collectible, these books go beyond the traditional tourist beats to make sure visitors get the best out of a city - no matter how short their stay. The guides are also discerning: they will not list a hundred places to eat, but they will focus on what is best for any occasion.
