Whilst most perceptions of Australia are for it’s stunning beaches, kangaroos and glorious weather, Melbourne it has to be said, takes more of a European approach. With a restaurant and bar scene that’s difficult to match anywhere in the world, along with its love for theater, art, fitness, sport, fashion and cosmopolitan lifestyle, it’s easy to see why Melbourne is the most livable city in the world.
One of the main reasons Melbourne evokes that European flair that you’d find in the streets of Rome, Paris or Lisbon is its quirky and personality-filled laneways. When visitors come to Melbourne, they sometimes feel at odds with where they should go, what they should see. But with its laneways and indulging persona, Melbourne is about wandering, snacking and seeing things up close.
And in some of Melbourne’s best laneways, you can do all of that.
