Dubbed Australia’s fashion capital, Melbourne boasts a strong coffee and cafe culture and a solid array of boutique fashion stores. Spend the day wandering between the cafe-lined alleyways, shopping for boutique and vintage clothes, and discovering hidden galleries and rooftop bars. Pack a romantic picnic and spend another day relaxing among the flowers and leafy trees in Botanic Gardens. A stroll along the Yarra River also provides plenty of photo opportunities. From Richmond, the CBD lies only a short drive away and tempts keen shoppers and foodies alike. Shopping fanatics can keep themselves entertained with a trip to Collins Street, a luxurious strand housing local markets, galleries, boutiques and cafes.
