Explore Melbourne : Insight Guides
Whether you’re looking for lively café culture, golden beaches, or sporting action, you’ll find it all in Melbourne.
Insight Guide Explore Melbourne is part of the latest batch of this brand-new series and is the ideal pocket companion for your trip: a full-color guide containing 14 easy-to-follow routes in and around the city.
Discover Collins and Swanston Streets’ fabulous architecture, the cultivated green space of the Royal Botanic Gardens, and the fashionable seaside at St Kilda, or head off on an excursion to the Yarra Valley’s wineries or the stunning scenery of the Great Ocean Road.
Insight’s trademark cultural coverage sets the routes in context, with introductions to Melbourne’s exciting cuisine, great shopping, sporting heritage, and key historical dates. Our recommended places to eat and drink are highlighted in each route, with even more suggestions in the directory section, which also contains a wealth of useful practical information, including a range of carefully selected hotels to suit all budgets.
All routes are plotted on the useful pull-out map, and evocative photography captures the essence of this most European of Australian cities.
