Melbourne 'is Australia's coolest city'

Article content

25 January 2010

A more cutting-edge and bohemian experience can be had for those travelling to Melbourne, Australia, it has been claimed.

The Guardian wrote that while Sydney is often favoured for its "stellar" qualities, fans of the road less travelled should head to the south of the country to find galleries, quirky bars and alternative fashion outlets.

Vintage French homeware can be found in Gigi à la Maison, a shop situated in south Melbourne, while Port Melbourne is home to Trash on Bay, offering vintage hats, luggage and china.

"When it comes to style, it's not just Melbourne's shops that ooze glamour; its bars are pretty cool, too," the Guardian advised.

It recommended the low-budget Newtown Worker's Club, cocktail bar 1806 and The Toff in Town, which is hidden away on the third floor of an office block to the west of the city.

Those looking to take the trip to Australia may be interested to learn that Qantas was recently revealed as the country's most punctual and reliable airline by the government's Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics.
