Yes there are other grander and larger churches in Melbourne, but for whatever reason this one stands out for me as being quite special. No Melbourne visit goes without a visit to St Augustines Church. It is a quaint church built using bluestone in 1867,...More

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
