Yarraville

Get a glimpse of village life within the city at immaculately preserved Yarraville, which feels like a different world from the CBD, just 10 kilometres away.

History in the mix
Go about your usual inner-city business at a relaxed pace around the village nexus of Anderson and Ballarat streets. The beautifully refurbished Edwardian and Victorian shopfronts house gastronomic neighbourhood cafes, restaurants and eclectic shops.

Stroll through boutiques, gift shops and bookstores, and keep your eye out for artisan wares, jewellery and gourmet food and wine that you won't find in the big city.

Village vibes
Envy the locals over coffee and cakes at Hausfrau Bakery and Cakes, Wee Jeanie or Cornershop. Bookend the day with cocktails at Acqua e Vino, tapas within the bluestone walls of Dig A Pony, or pizza at L'Uccellino.

Around the sun
Don't miss the beautifully restored Art Deco Sun Theatre, opened in 1938 and a modern-day icon of Melbourne's film community. Catch cult films, classics and recent releases.

How to get there
By train, catch the Werribee line from Flinders Street or Southern Cross stations. Journey time is approximately 20 minutes.

By car, Yarraville is 15 minutes from the CBD via the West Gate Freeway. Take the Williamstown Road exit.
