Melbourne - four day weekend

Jump to last reply

Hello Fodor friends and happy new year to you all.

So myself, along with six girlfriends are heading to Melbourne in May - to see Wicked. We are heading down on Friday morning and home Monday afternoon. I found a hot hot deal at the Hotel Windsor so will be staying there for the three nights.

Most of the girls are keen shoppers so that's probably number one on the list. Reading on another thread it was posted that Sydney street is a good destination. Would you agree? We will be visiting the Victoria markets.

We also want to explore the laneways and I am really unsure whether to take a tour or explore ourselves - your thoughts?

Would like to have a dinner at Chinatown one night and Lygon street another night - any suggestions for good restaurant in each place?

We also discussed visiting Fitzroy Gardens and Captain Cook's cottage there.

There's probably two days with a number of hours free so suggestions would be appreciated - we don't really envisage travelling too far from the city but I am wondering if it's worth a tram ride down to St Kilda?

Looking forward to hearing from you.
