Spend the day wandering between the café-lined alleyways, shopping for boutique and vintage clothes, and discovering hidden galleries and rooftop bars. Pack a romantic picnic and spend another day relaxing amongst the flowers and leafy trees in Alexandra Gardens.
City lovers keep themselves entertained with a trip to Collins Street, the luxurious strand housing local markets, galleries, boutiques and cafes.
