If I had a week in Melbourne

Apart from eating herself silly, drinking lots of latte and reading The Age everyday MB would:

View the iconic photographs of Max Dupain on exhibition at the Victorian Archives -

Visit the National Gallery on St Kilda Rd:

At least one visit to the Queen Victoria Market is mandatory: Jam donuts there are the best. Prahran & South Melbourne markets are worth a visit too.

Take a stroll through the Botanic Gardens:

On Mothers Day - 10 May: MB would head out to Langwarrin to check out Lady Elisabeth Murdoch's gardens which will be open to public -

MDR would love to do Foster's Brewery Tour in Abbotsford:

MB would definitely catch some Cuban music

Browsing in Chapel Street, eating in Brunswick Street and at little Vietnam in Richmond. A kebab at Alasya always goes down well too.

Of course this is only the tip of the iceberg....

It just so happens that we will be in Melbourne May 20-25th. Lots og good info here, thanks. I can almost smell those jam doughnuts at the Vic Market

We were in Melbourne for a week last week. Of your items, we scored zero.
We managed
* Fitzroy Gardens
* Williamstown
* Chapel St shopping
* Lygon St dinner
* Smith St Collingwood factory clearance
* Eureka Skydeck 88

Mind you, I suspect our age profile averaged across the group meant that the most popular choice was a lolly shop and Smiggle.
