Melbourne city baths have been around for many decades. It is an excellent place to have a swim and the only issue is parking. If you are in Melbourne and want to get rid of some jet lag or just get some exercise then it...More
I've used the squash courts on a semi-regular basis and on numerous occasions had my booking messed up, turned up and not been allowed to play. They have always refunded me but it's such an inconvenience. It's a shame because it's such a good location...More
Great place to see, showing the original architects plans for the baths, also giving the history of the baths as a place to bathe and also to swim for the ordinary people of Melbourne whom didn’t have a bath at home.
The Melbourne City Baths building is gorgeous- it was built in 1903 and you can still see the original seperate entrances it had for men and women. Fear not however, mixed bathing was introduced in 1947. The main “bath” is a 30 or so meter...More

I have been a member of that gym for 15 months. One day a cocky old man reported me to a manager because I was reading a text message in the changing room. According to Ben (the front desk person who for 15 month has...More
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
