South Melbourne hosts the city’s oldest continuous market, founded in 1867. Rows of neatly arranged fruit, vegetables and flowers splash yellows, greens and reds along the entire perimeter, where the whole neighbourhood gathers for Saturday feasts. Inside the hall, shoppers hover over the mouth-watering displays of delicatessens and specialty food shops. Further in, a bazaar full of giftware, clothing, and kitchen utensils completes the scene. Take a break to walk the wide and shady streets and stroll along the Victorian-era heritage terrace houses. But return to the market in time for some paella, simmering in three large frypans on the footpath and served straight onto your plate.
South Melbourne has quite a history and the Town Hall sits on the highest point of what was known as Emetald Hill. It doesn’t look high but it is compared to its surroundings. If you stand outside and look around you’ll see in the distant e the Melbourne Shrine of Remebersnce. The old Court House which is the location of...
Monet's Garden exhibition was part of the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) Winter Masterpieces exhibition in 2013. It has now moved on. The exhibition was very popular, giving an insight into how this great impressionist painter worked.
originally designed for the locals who live in commisson housing its now very popular as an old school non sanitisied playground unlike a lot of OHS safe newer playgrounds. It has lots of little nooks and crannies that allow kids to use imagination. It also has chooks and vegie patch.
TIP: can be closed if being used by locals. call...
It was really interesting to see the large looms and the process for creating tapestries. The staff was very welcoming. They had a large color selection of wool yarn on sale. There is a space where you can sit and watch the weavers work from above, giving you a good view of how weave with the bobbins. The staff left...
We took our 8 and 10 year old for our first escape room and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We did the Escape Room and although the location (at the rear of somebody's house) is unusual, the experience was awesome. My 10 year old was really engaged with the puzzles and it challenged what I thought were her strengths. We managed...
I've been a few times now and just can not get enough of this place. Everything is so so great in this place from the decor to the friendly and knowledgable staff and obviously not forgetting the great, great food and coffee! You have to come here for a true Melbourne experience
We ways visit when in town and it was pleasantly quiet when we arrived early at 8.15am! Sitting outside sipping fab coffee and enjoying brunch was perfect before hitting the markets.
The serves here are pretty big - be warned! Delicious having said that.
Wonderful degustation here, and is in the top echelons of Melbourne’s restaurant offerings. Flavors were divine with each course (14 of them) being perfectly balanced, interesting and superbly presented. Thought that each course couldn’t get any better but they did. Service was impeccable and nothing was too difficult to arrange. Might have to make this an annual tradition.
Just had a great tapas meal and a couple of drinks at Hercules Morse. This has to be one of the most under-rated restaurants in South Melbourne. Great for an after work bite before heading home. The 'fish fingers' were exceptional... and very good Macedon Ranges Pinot Noir was much appreciated.
Sorry no photos. My family ordered a paella to share, the beef cheek, the meatballs, the calamari and the mushrooms with garlic.
The beef cheek was tender and tasty, the paella’s ingredients were fresh tasting and of good quality and the mushrooms were earthy and full of flavor.
