Insider city tips

  • Paul Kristoff, Editor in Chief, The City Lane

    "Melbourne is a city that rewards those who want to really get under the skin of the city and live like a local."

    We spoke with Paul Kristoff Editor in Chief of online magazine The City Lane to get his insider tips and travel hacks for getting around Melbourne like a local.

    1. What's your favourite Melbourne CBD attraction you won't find on the tourist map?

    Whereas other places might wow tourists with their attractions, many of which locals rarely visit, Melburnians will make you feel at home, and will proudly show off the things that make this city great for those who live here.

    Of course there's the good food and drink, the sports, the laneways and the street art but something that Melbourne also excels at is providing people with opportunities to learn. One of my favourites is Laneway Learning, who run “cheap, fun classes in anything and everything in Melbourne”. Classes are around $14 and numbers are generally kept to no more than 20 people to ensure that everyone has a chance to get involved. It happens on weekday evenings in cafes and bars in the CBD and there really is something on offer for everyone – recent classes include topics ranging from brewing and bottling Kombucha to ethical travel to the art of Bollywood dance. 

    2. Can you share with us any travel hacks for getting around Melbourne's CBD that only locals know about?

    One thing that I see even locals getting wrong when travelling around Melbourne is tapping on and off trams with their Myki cards. When on trains, you have to tap on and off however when on the tram you only have to tap on. If you're travelling exclusively in the CBD it's even easier – you don't have to tap on or off because the entire CBD is a free tram zone.

    My advice however, if you're trying to get around the CBD is to avoid any kind of transportation other than your 2 feet. Melbourne's CBD is extremely flat and walkable, and with plenty of alleyways and arcades connecting the city's larger streets, you never know what you might miss if you don't explore!


    Aubrey Daquinag, Founder of The Love Assembly

    "There's a lot going on in Melbourne CBD: it's got that European vibe with the gothic-like architecture and plenty of things to do right at your doorstep."

    We spoke with Aubrey Daquinag founder of The Love Assembly - a blog full of travel finds, experiences, tips and inspiration for the style-conscious traveller - to get her insider tips for getting around Melbourne like a local.

    1. Which do you think is the best neighbourhood to stay in for a first time visitor, on a weekend trip to Melbourne? Why?

    For a first time visit I'd say to stay in Melbourne CBD, there's a lot going on in the city: it's got that European vibe with the gothic-like architecture and plenty of things to do right at your doorstep - plus you'll be in the free tram zone, handy in case you get a little tired from wandering around by foot. Venturing out to other Melbourne neighbourhoods like Fitzroy, Collingwood and Brunswick in the north and St Kilda to be near the water is also super accessible by train or tram.

    2. What's the most unique thing you can do on a trip to Melbourne?

    This city has many unique things on offer, I'm not too sure where to begin!

    I feel that markets - whether they be food, fashion or general bric-a-brac - are definitely a great way to get a feel for a city so a visit to Queen Victoria Market would surely be on top of the list. Not only will you be able to taste great market food but it's also a historic landmark of Melbourne. Get lost in all of the great stalls on the weekend and pick up a few things for a picnic lunch.

    The National Gallery of Victoria is also at the top. It's Australia's oldest art gallery and always filled with exceptional art and interesting exhibitions. You could spend hours here. I know I have!

    Also, the guys behind Lime & Tonic Melbourne are always coming up with incredible unique experiences in Melbourne.
