Carlton is said to be Melbourne birthplace of pizza and Australia’s first espresso machine so it’s no wonder it’s been dubbed “little Italy”. Lively Lygon Street and surrounds abound with award-winning restaurants, expansive coffee, cake shops and delicious gelateria. If you have an appetite for fashion and style, you’ll find everything from individual designer names, vintage treasures and handmade shoes to cool and quirky giftware.
There’s plenty on offer to feed the soul with independent theatre at La Mama, mainstream and arthouse movies at Cinema Nova, (look out for student special price tix each Monday), innovative exhibitions at the Melbourne Museum, the awesome 3D experience at IMAX or book-browsing at Readings book and music store.
If all that leaves you looking for a rest, pack a picnic and visit the award-winning Melbourne Zoo or feed the ducks in the Carlton Gardens, home to the historic Exhibition Buildings.
