MEL­BOURNE HIGH FIVE

The Weekend Australian - Travel - - Front Page -

Take trams, not taxis. Mel­bourne’s pub­lic trans­port sys­tem is ar­guably the best in the coun­try.

Never leave your ho­tel without an um­brella. Mel­bourne re­ally does have four sea­sons in one day.

Drink and shop at your peril. There is a wine bar next to al­most ev­ery bou­tique in Mel­bourne, which can lead to re­gret­table pur­chases.

Take a daytrip to High Street in Ar­madale and Hawks­burn Vil­lage. Both have ex­cel­lent fash­ion bou­tiques and home­wares stores.

If you’re in Mel­bourne in Fe­bru­ary or Septem­ber, book tick­ets to the L’Oreal Mel­bourne Fash­ion Fes­ti­val or Mel­bourne Spring Fash­ion Week, which stage run­way shows for the pub­lic. www.lmff.com.au; www.msfw.com.au. Ge­orgina Safe
