With its fantastic bars and restaurants, Instragram-worthy laneways and year-round festivals devoted to everything from comedy to fashion, Melbourne is a fantastic place to visit any time of year. The city is a very walkable neat grid, and public transport will get you anywhere you would like to go. Trams are free in the city, and public transport runs 24 hours on the weekends. Don't be afraid to explore beyond the CBD, either – there are some magnificent gems south of the river and north of state parliament.
