A Dozen Female Friendly Tips About Melbourne, Australia

Free on off tram
Melbourne has a new government public transport initiative. A free bus that makes things so much easier. Jump on and off at leisure. See:
Sandie, Melbourne, Australia

I love my city
I moved to Melbourne around 20 years ago from Sydney and just LOVE this city. There's always something happening and many events are free. Federation Square on the banks of the Yarra is a fantastic venue with FREE happenings every weekend. It also contains the Melbourne Information Centre with a wealth of information. Guides proudly wear their red uniforms in Swanston Street and in Bourke Street Mall, ready to help and direct tourists. Southbank has a string of excellent restaurants (my favourite Italian is La Camera and a food hall. A stroll along the Yarra leads to Crown Casino and eventually to DFO, a fantastic outlet where I've picked up incredible bargains. Over the bridge is the wonderful Art Gallery and Botanical Gardens. And the FREE tram takes you on a circle route around the city where you can stop off whenever you want. When you include Melbourne in your travels, arrange for at least three days if not longer. There's so much to do and see you won't be disappointed.

Night Market
The Queen Victoria Market's Night Market is a great place to experience all kinds of local foods. Over 60 different foods from all over the world, even local treats like kangeroo, bib and tucker. This is one of the reasons Melbourne is considered so multicultural.

Lots to explore
I'd like to recommend Gopal's, a small vegetarian restaurant with rock bottom prices and decent food. It's located at 139 Swanton Street. Website: I enjoyed riding the tram on Collins St to the Queen Victoria Market and then exploring Collins Street, its cafes and shops. See the Skydeck, the tallest structure in S. Hemisphere, the Botanical Gardens with its nice café and Shrine of Remembrance, the shrine that commemorates the lives lost in the Great War of 1914-18. They are close to one another.

Penguin Parade
Everyone will say this but the best thing in Australia let alone Melbourne is the penguin parade on Phillip Island. Absolutely must not be missed.

Melbourne food treats...

If money is absolutely no issue, then try Ezards definitely (probably $300 for a couple!). It's modern Asian and very special. I've had the pleasure of eating there three times. Website:

In my suburb, Albert Park, which is about 4-5km from the city of Melbourne, our fave is Kamel (great budget Middle Eastern) and close second is Misuzus (Japanese).

In Melbourne city, Red Spice Road is delish (they do Asian fusion and a great lunch deal for groups). Also Mamasita is great Mexican food (lots of New Mexican places have opened in Melbourne). Grossi Florentino Cellar Door is yummy as, cheaper than the main Grossi restaurant next door.

But, Queen Victoria Market and the bureks for lunch are the best! Website:
