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
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
This is a lovely little church up. A place to go and sit and reflect. There is a little garden and it's nice to go if Churches are your thing. If you are wanting some quiet reflection time it's definitely a nice place to go...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

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
of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
