Monocle's Travel Guides go beyond the traditional tourist beats to make sure you get the best out of a city —no matter how short your stay. Designed to be compact and collectable, they are also discerning; Monocle's team won't list a hundred places to eat but they will tell you where's best for everything from some tasty fast food to something truly celebratory.
With its picture-perfect terrace houses, an enviable cache of cultural hotspots and more sleek coffee shops than you can shake a bag of finely ground beans at, it’s little wonder that Melburnians regularly claim that their bayside city is the most liveable in the world. The Monocle Travel Guide to Melbourne will lead you down our favourite laneways, drop by the cutting-edge galleries shaking up the city’s art scene and show you where to marvel at modernist architecture. We’ve also sifted through the city’s cafés, restaurants and bars to find the finest establishments in which to order a perfectly poured flat white and some top-notch tucker.
