Johnnys Green Room Rooftop Bar & Lygon Street Carlton

5 Comments

012You shouldnโ€™t miss a stroll along Lygon Street when you visit Melbourne. This leafy tree lined street in the heart of Carlton is known as โ€˜Little Italyโ€™ mainly due to the Italian families who populated the area when they migrated in the 1950s and itโ€™s the place where Melbourne’s cafe culture was born. History names it as the first place to install an espresso machine in Australia. Today the street is still crammed with Italian restaurants, ice cream shops, boutiques and bars and is a vibrant place to visit on a night out. View the pictures →

Milk The Cow โ€“ Licensed Fromagerie Melbourne

11 Comments

This concept is very close to my idea of heaven! For caravanners, think of it as the most upmarket happy hour youโ€™ve ever taken part in. When we visited Melbourne we stepped into this wonderland in the suburb of Carlton, and there is another at St Kilda. The idea of this fromagerie is to pair cheeses and wines (and other beverages) and there are a number of options you can choose from.

Northcote Bars and a Vegan Cafe in Fitzroy

9 Comments

thumbnail_IMG_3967Ask the locals that know Melbourne and they will tell you that Northcote is the hipster patch around 6 kilometres north east of the city centre, and home to cafes, bars and boutiques. Itโ€™s also a part of town weโ€™ve visited often with so many choices of places to go for great food and casual friendly bars for an after dinner drink.

High Street in Northcote is where itโ€™s all happening and on our latest visit to Melbourne we visited a couple of bars including an old favourite and a new cosy spot.

Wandering Melbourne CBD

10 Comments

Sometimes the best plan is to make no plans and just wander and discover. This is how I feel when visiting Melbourne city. Itโ€™s nice to have an idea of where you will end up but how you get there, and what you see on the way is flexible. View the pictures →

Northside Wines โ€“ Northcote Victoria

8 Comments

We are just back from a whirlwind weekend visit to Melbourne, where with each visit, we make it a point to see new places, and dine out at new venues we havenโ€™t been to previously. There is no shortage of places on our list to try, but we managed to cross off a few more on this latest trip, starting with Northside Wines in Northcote.
