The City of Melbourne

The City of Melbourne has 15 distinct ‘Precincts’,

small pockets of the city with their own unique character, colour

and charm.

Like London’s West End or New York’s Times Square,

each precinct has a recognizable identity.

Some are small, just a lane or two, while others

will transport you to another world in just a few streets.

You’ll find public art where you least expect it, café society

reminiscent of Europe and a treasure trove of surprises awaiting your discovery.

Melbourne’s precincts offer culture, intrigue, romance and

excitement, from the narrowest laneways to Melbourne’s marvellous


Crisscross the City on a tram and see them all, or spend the day exploring just one in detail, you'll uncover something new that will stay with you forever.
