Where to stay in Melbourne

Hotels Melbourne CBD

Staying in the heart of the city puts you minutes away from top attractions like the Melbourne Aquarium, Arts Centre and Royal Botanic Gardens, as well as the trendy boutiques and cafes of the laneways. It's also convenient for transport, if you're arriving at Southern Cross Station Coach Terminal or want to ride the free City Circle tram between the sights.


Along with Brunswick, Fitzroy forms Melbourne's hipster district and is the best place to see the city's youthful energy and creativity on display. As well as coffee dens and pop-up restaurants, you'll also find timeless attractions like the Melbourne Museum and Royal Exhibition Building. With thrift stores and cheap hotels, Fitzroy is budget-friendly.

St Kilda

Melbourne may not be associated with beaches, but St Kilda aims to change that. Whether you're paddle boarding or kitesurfing, taking the kids to Luna Park, visiting for the Formula 1 or just hanging out with the penguins, there are plenty of ways to spend the days at St Kilda before heading to a beachfront restaurant or pub and watching the sun go down.

What to do in Melbourne

Ditch the tourist trail

If you're bored of doing the obvious, get a head start on Melbourne's hidden gems with Skyscanner's local's guide to the CBD and Fitzroy.

Mornington Peninsula

Melburnians' favourite day trip, the Mornington Peninsula is just 90 minutes south of the CBD. Visit Victoria's oldest buildings, gaze longingly at the mansions of Millionaire's Walk and enjoy the views over Port Phillip Bay. If you're visiting in February, don't miss the Mornington Peninsula Food and Wine Festival.

Yarra Valley

If you're partial to a pinot noir or chardonnay, you're in luck – Melbourne's closest wine region is less than an hour's drive from the city centre. Tour the cellar doors to meet local winemakers and taste their best drops, indulge your other vice at the Chocolaterie, or admire the scenery from above on a hot air balloon ride.
