This bluestone [basalt] church is close to Spencer Street. Unlike some Roman Catholic churches it is largely unadorned internally although there are two beautiful rose windows. It is actually larger inside than may be imagined with a timber ceiling, a central nave and aisles with...More

I was told about this church by staff at St Francis. On my last day with only 2 hours before heading for airport I strolled down to visit this church. It is smaller in size and nowhere near as decorated but had the right feel....More

Central Business District
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

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
