Arbory Afloat – Melbourne

5 Comments

thumbnail_IMG_4128Here’s a unique venue to try in Melbourne city. Arbory Afloat, as the name suggests, is a floating bar and restaurant on the Yarra River, in the heart of Melbourne. Each year for the past five, this floating casual bar has been operating on the river and this year the décor has been altered to recreate the feeling of an Australian beach house.

Johnnys Green Room Rooftop Bar & Lygon Street Carlton

5 Comments

012You shouldn’t miss a stroll along Lygon Street when you visit Melbourne. This leafy tree lined street in the heart of Carlton is known as ‘Little Italy’ mainly due to the Italian families who populated the area when they migrated in the 1950s and it’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 – 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 you’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. It’s also a part of town we’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 it’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. It’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 →
