We went here on a Wednesday when they hold an evening food market, couldn't believe the amount of choice there was for food and drinks.

I have traveled the world and this was up there with international food markets. Went on a Thursday and as we were eating fresh muscles in garlic and white wine sauce, we realised it was close to 2pm (closing time). We had planned to get some of the nicest and diverse range of seafood to take home, so we rushed... More

This is a hot secret in Melbourne. It is only on during the Summer Months (well during Day light Saving so from October to March) and on a Wednesday night only. Get there early - food and drinks can be served from 5pm onwards, but if you want to be there before the crowd and to grab a chair and... More

This was the first time we had visited the Queen Victoria Night Market. Am sad to say, it will more than likely be the last. The place was so chock-a-block that it was extremely difficult to move. This was in reality only to be expected. The main attraction of this night market is undoubtedly the food stalls.Just about each and... More

One of the best markets we have visited. Seems such a pity to renovate it. Great atmosphere and good bargains especially on closing time.

Any trip to Melbourne should include a visit to the Queen Victoria Markets located on the fringe of the CBD. Items available for sale by various stall holders include a range of fresh food and vegetables, butchers, small goods, takeaway food, sit down meals, souvenirs, household nicknacks, and much much more. The markets span several buildings, and vary in stall... More

Fair selection of foods including burgers, pizzas, doughnuts, sweetcorn and of course the fresh fruit and vegetables. Not over-priced. What I had I liked. Good food for a quick, cheap meal.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
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.
