5 top things we enjoyed in Melbourne

Walk round Fitzroy

We’re staying in Fitzroy, an older, elegant part of Melbourne, with some beautiful old buildings. We are enjoying staying in the Cairo building, Art Deco, built in 1936, with a bunch of interesting shops, restaurants and street art around. There’s also a tram stop right outside, and the Melbourne Museum across the road, what a great location!
