It is a different part of Melbourne that is now becoming trendier and it has some interesting old buildings as well as some good restaurants and some not so good. It still has a slightly tough edge but an interesting part of Melbourne.

Fitzroy is an unusual blend of working class roots,
hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic.
Along Brunswick Street and its side streets, you'll
