One of the things that I wanted to see while in Australia was Aboriginal Art. It is surprisingly easy to miss if you don't know where to go. This gallery, which sells the work, represents among the finest artists in the country. I was absolutely amazed at the beauty, intricacy and craft of the paintings! I also found the staff... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving up age-old recipes. The lighting may be unromantic, the patrons loud, and the service no-nonsense, but the food is sensational.
