The vibrant Melbourne CBD is a haven for those with a love of dining, shopping and entertainment. Around each and every corner there is something to discover, from topnotch events, to lively festival and exhibitions, an exciting multi-cultural scene, art galleries, trendsetting fashion and avant-garde design, the majority within close proximity to the city centre. Despite the fact that Melbourne is virtually modern, there is so much history packed into the city, renowned for its preservation of historical buildings, as well as tranquil recreational areas. Maintaining the beauty of the city's Victorian history are countless cathedrals and churches placed throughout the CBD. Uncover the wonder of Cook's Cottage, visit the Old Melbourne Gaol, Como House, The Royal Exhibition Building, Flinders Street Station, Parliament House, Rippon Lea Estate, the old GPO; or head to the Victoria Markets which is bursting with everything from regional produce to a selection of international cuisine, locally designed and imported clothing, jewellery, crafts and keepsakes.
