Filled with a classic Victorian era charm, South Melbourne is one of the city’s oldest suburbs and possesses a rich and proud history. The area has aged gracefully. From the vibrant, multicultural South Melbourne Market to the chic cafes responsible for reviving our city’s coffee culture, this is a suburb that offers the best of old and new.

Here, nightlife is a quintessentially Aussie affair that draws on the best of Melbourne’s pub culture. You’ll find countless watering holes, all perfect for a cheeky pot or hearty counter meal.

Or for something a little more refined, why not make a visit to one of South Melbourne’s newer offerings. For a fun and modern interpretation on some classic cocktails, Hercules Morse will have you covered. And for a quality dining experience, don’t go past the lively Wayside Inn.

There’s a lot happening in this quarter, and whether for food or drink, or arts and culture, South Melbourne has you covered.

The weather is getting warmer, the festive season is only a stone’s throw away and as we settle into the heart of spring, the urge to get out and about has reinvigorated our spirits. So why not fuel your cultural appetite by exploring the latest Quarter?
