A very vibrant laneway in a city full of laneways. In fact, the big attraction to Melbourne is this alley lifestyle where there's great people-watching and wonderful restaurants of every price range. At night it takes on a whole other atmosphere.

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
