Time out in Melbourne's East End Theatre District
Home to blockbuster international stage shows and performances, Melbourne's East End Theatre District sets the stage for an award-winning stay in the city.
Settle into your accommodation, then make your way to one of Melbourne's renowned cafes for top-notch refuelling. Wander the creative boutiques and galleries along Flinders Lane and Little Collins Street, and be sure to explore iconic laneways and glamorous retail hotspots St. Collins Lane and Emporium – where that perfect theatre outfit awaits.
Browse Australian authors at a cosy bookshop, stretch your legs in green spaces, slurp authentic Italian gelato, and up your cultural fix with outstanding exhibitions and collections at ACMI and NGV Australia.
Up this end of town there's a roll call of gastronomic settings where you can analyse the performance. Choose a languid lunch before a matinee, a nourishing pre-theatre dinner, or a sophisticated late-night bite and tipple. Make it a hatted affair or go casual at 3am – in the theatre district, you write the script.
