If you to see some beautiful old architecture, then this place is a must. Intricate detail from the roof right down to the mosaic floor. Definitely worth a visit just to see a sample of our past heritage
This is where Miss Fisher was strolling in the promotional material for the TV series. Tea rooms somewhat overpriced but very beautiful. The floor mosaics anf overall prettiness o fthe Block is worth a stop and look around and the shops are interesting, too.
There was a fantastic exhibition on about two artists and then I went upstairs to see their collection - I was so amazed at the sheer number of high quality artworks on display - my feet hurt I walked around so much. Highly recommended.

In the big picture, I suggest starting at the downtown Southern Cross Station, where there is an office where a nice person will answer all of your questions, give you maps, and sell you a Myki card, if you want. If you are taking the Skybus from the Airport (which departs every 10 minutes all day and night), it takes you to the Southern Cross Station. Downtown trams are free and a station is a one or two block walk from the Southern Cross Station. A Myki card is for public transport in the larger metro area.
