On a trip to the city around Christmas time, there was more than enough information at the MVC provided for us to be able to plan a full afternoon and evening of activities. Lovely, out of the main drag location which was easily accessible.

Sited near the river, they have a large range of information on activities to do in the area. Staff were very helpful and willing to give some good advice about the best things to do to fit in your agenda.

We always recommend our visitors go to this centre, when they first get to the city centre. The staff are friendly, their advice tailored to the individual, and the location means that many of the tourist venues are within walking distance.

The leaflets were arranged in a way that meant you had to ask for help to locate what you wanted. It was okay, but not the best visitors centre I've been to.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
