Culturally and historically rich and genuinely diverse, the Queen Vic quarter is one of Melbourne’s most underrated neighbourhoods. Catering to an active and demanding crowd, the location presents a number of food and lifestyle gems, which create an allure truly fitting of the destination.

A great example of Melbourne’s world-renowned multiculturalism, the quarter’s lifeblood is based around the ever-buzzing Queen Victoria Market. Indeed, if it’s good food and shopping you’re after, this neighbourhood has you covered.

Early risers will appreciate the latest coffee offerings from Market Lane and Padre; those after a cheap bite will undoubtedly enjoy Wonderbao’s tasty food options; and late night drinkers will be found sipping on a variety of beers at Prudence.

The year is coming to a close and the Christmas break is almost upon us, so whether you’re looking for somewhere to shop for loved ones, in need of a little cultural escape, or even looking for some holiday inspiration, the Queen Vic quarter is just right for you.
