Melbourne’s alternative side is full-force in Fitzroy, the inner-city mecca for all things cool and kooky. Wander along Brunswick Street, Fitzroy’s main drag, for tonnes of vintage clothing stores and second-hand bookshops. Take your pick from an array of cafés and restaurants, like the famous vegetarian spot Vegie Bar, or stop into The Everleigh for some of Melbourne's finest cocktails. Just minutes north of the CBD on the 112 tram, discover the artsy heart of Melbourne.
