    Very modernized yet cultural library. It is truly a place where not only provides a nice reafing and research place but also a museum experience. The Dome and layout of the library is really interesting. The library is divided into different wings too. You can spend a good 2 hours to look through the exhibits.

    When I go into Melbourne city I usually call into the Visitors center in the Town Hall building to get the latest information on what's on, what's showing and interesting walks and tours to take and any other questions I have about Melbourne - and they always help me - and I live here and always find out something new about this marvellous city of Melbourne.

    We recieved duscounted tickets thru a promo offer so i thought why not. The lounge ticks the boxes as food and drinks go. Staff friendly and accommodating. Does not have the views like other lounges but it still beats sitting on the terminal seats waiting those couple of hours for your flight. Free wifi available and most areas have power points and usb. Would come back again if offered promo tickets.

    One of Melbourne's best spots. Culture with a view! Stunning place, relaxing, quiet, with the plus of a delicious cappuccino as you only find in this incredible city.

    Located in Flinders Lane, between Swanston Street and Degraves Street, is the City Library. There are the standard COVID access checks to get in, and then it’s to what ever section takes your interest. Quite popular even in these times.

    The Fitzroy Gardens Visitor Information Centre has a range of pamphlets on offer to places all around Melbourne.

    The staff can also help and recommended the many attractions, tailored to your own personal taste throughout the city.

    Located opposite Cook’s Cottage, it’s also where you purchase tickets for this attraction itself.

    I have always been adamant that Visitor Centres should always be your first port of call, regardless of wherever in the world you seem to travel to.

    Lastly, remember and respect that on many occasions, the staff are actual volunteers.

    The Melbourne Athenaeum Library is a real institution in this large city. The Library has been operating from the same spot since 1839! It is the oldest subscription-based library in Victoria. It lends books of all types, plus more, to everyone who cares to walk in and become a member.

    In this age of the Covid pandedmic, it is sensible that the Niddrie Library is taking strict precautions againt infection. All library users must be double jabbed and provide a phone contact. There are ample supplies of hand sanitiser. The Library has been doing great work by lending books throughout the lockdown using "no contact" lending. All the same, library users seem happy to be able to browse the shelves and find entertaining books that keep youngsters occupied.

    We dropped in here to grab some maps and got what we needed. The Colombian staff member was very helpful and suggested 2 Colombian restaurants to try.

    For an exclusive small group conference location, great food and iconic building with a surprising history. Beautiful grounds.

    Within walking distance of tram route and opposite the lovely Curtin Square. Seems to be a quieter atmosphere than most other libraries

    Melbourne Showgrounds host o number of fairs and exbibitions during the year, but the biggest and best loved is the Royal Melbourne Show. The Show brings the country to the city, it's based around agriculture. Apart from handicrafts and cooking, the carnival sideshows draw a big crowd. The Show draws visitors from all over Victoria, it's an opportunjty for country folk to get together and swap stories.

    The Flemington Library will be closing in June for renovations, It's a blow to those of us who use this small library regularly, but the end result should be an improvement.

    The Baillieu Library is the largest discipline-specific library on the Univerity of Melbourne Parkville campus. The library was funded as a philanthropic guesture by the well-known Baillieu family. The library is built in Modernist style; it was opened in 1959 by Prime Minister Robert Gordon Menzies QC, an alumnus of the university. The Baillieu library specialises in the arts, humanities and social sciences, with the aim of fostering research, learning and teaching. Over 200,000 rare and historic books, magazines, pamphlets and literary archives are housed in the Baillieu's special collections. It is the largest non-governmental archive in Australia. If you lined up the storage boxes side by side, they would extend some 15 km (over 9 miles). The Baillieu is, on the whole, a quiet library. It often has special displays from the collection, which are quite fascinating.
