Melbourne … making sense of a collection of villages

Melbourne is an eclectic city full of top-quality restaurants, stylish shops and graffiti laneways hiding doors to cocktail bars, galleries and the hippest boutiques.

Easily experienced on foot, bicycle or tram, Melbourne is a collection of villages.

Melbourne’s heart is the rabbit warren of lanes and arcades, where boutiques and bars, restaurants and cafes all thrive.

These destinations are just as much about the adventure of finding them as they are about what they sell.

Each of the 20 precincts feature local businesses stocking local makers, using local produce, supporting their local community, which is a central part of being a Melburnian.

Creative locals from each area give their insider tips and discuss their favourite haunts.

Dale Campisi’s stylish guide to Melbourne picks out the very best of the city’s shopping, eating and drinking experiences for locals and tourists alike.

Create your own perfect day out in Melbourne and discover some new places that are guaranteed to have you coming back for more.

Melbourne Precincts is part of the award-winning Precincts series – the Australian Book Designers Association deemed it worthy of the Best Designed Series award due to the fact that the series has forged its own place in a highly saturated travel-book market place.

The bold used of cover patterns tells the reader about the city with outhaving to show them pictures. Other books in the series include London Precincts, Sydney Precincts, Tokyo Precincts, Paris Precincts and Hong Kong Precincts.
