Staying in the heart of Melbourne, on Collins or Flinders Streets and their nearby laneways, or at Southbank, is ideal for those who like dining and shopping. Another trendy area, a little out of town, is South Yarra, which also has excellent shopping. Wherever you stay, make sure you're near a tram, bus, or train line.
