Welcome, skip to the content.

Jump ahead of the game and get to know North Melbourne's hottest properties before the word gets out about the innovative arts, edgy bars and cafes and welcoming community.

Victorian verandas and an artistic hub

Sit under the Victorian verandas around Errol Street for convivial brunches and afternoon drinks. Try Auction Rooms, Agraba, Rubicon, Rrose, Sosta and Grigons & Orr Corner Store. For a feast, make a booking at the Courthouse or Sosta Cucina, and for a summery courtyard tipple, vie for a spot out back at the Town Hall Hotel.

Follow the tick-tock of the grand clock to the former North Melbourne Town Hall, now known as Arts House, a thriving performing arts space and hub for the Melbourne Fringe Festival along with the nearby Meat Market. Explore the changing exhibitions at Gallerysmith.

Celebrate at the Spring Fling

Let your hair down at the Spring Fling Festival, the annual North and West Melbourne community celebration or head to the monthly North Melbourne Market at the Lithuanian Club for vintage and designer finds.

Victoria Street and Market

Meander down Victoria Street. On the north side of the street, browse a killer collection of old and new vinyl at Heartland Records, stop for a tipple at Prudence, for Korean barbecue at Woo Ga, or for a brew and a band at the Public Bar.

On the south side, don't (you can't) miss the Queen Victoria Market – or Queen Vic – historic landmark and functioning market. Take a gander at the souvenirs, then fill your basket with the freshest seafood, meats, fruit and deli delights.

How to get there

By tram: Number 57 from Elizabeth Street to the Queen Victoria Market and Errol Street; or Numbers 19 and 59 from Elizabeth Street to the Queen Victoria Market (about 10-20 minutes).

By train: From Flinders Street to North Melbourne station on the Craigieburn and Upfield lines (about 15 minutes).
