You’ll join one of our local Melbourne hosts to head to Melbourne’s northern suburbs for a jaunt around its two trendiest neighbourhoods: Fitzroy and Carlton.

This is where all the cool kids come to play. But there’s more to life than hipsters, so let your host reveal the true personalities of these arty enclaves to you.

Experience the effervescent character of both neighbourhoods as you wander the streets lined with bold street art and packed with vintage stores, quirky shops, hipster bars and funky markets selling recycled, up cycled and handmade goods.

Your host will take you to Carlton, with roots firmly grounded in the Italian heritage of its residents, where you can experience for authentic Italian cuisine, rich culture, alfresco dining and a taste of la dolce vita, Aussie style!

Then you will head on over to Fitzroy, where you will find vibrant and unusual street art emblazoned on every free wall, trendy concept stores which ooze creativity and style on seemingly every street and a community driven, eco-friendly outdoor market to explore.

With so many cool cafes and coffee shops, bars on rooftops and inside classic Victorian era shops, and eateries where organic and fair-trade produce features on the menu, you’ll have a hard time deciding where to stop!

    • Discover vibrant street art, artistic communities, vintage stores, concept shops, quirky cafes and hipster rooftop bars as you explore Fitzroy and Carlton
    • Browse an outdoor market where everything is recycled, up-cycled or hand made by locals (or all of the above, probably)
    • Try delicious food from an al fresco Italian restaurant, an organic cafe or pop up food market
    • Discover where the most loud and proud street art is emblazoned on walls, floors and ceilings
    • Stop by a coffee shop where organic and fair trade is the name of the game, a rooftop bar or a street side wine bar where tables spill out into the street
    • Get tips and tricks from your host for other alternative things to do in the city, and other unique neighbourhoods to explore
