Next time I am visiting Melbourne I will spend a day just exploring the churches. So many superb old churches, each one of them is filled with character and stories to tell. Scots Church is another little ripper, beautiful inside and out. The church is...More

Great location; easy to find. Fantastic architecture in a small CBD church. There's a massive organ with 4,300 pipes (!) seated into the side and back walls; all refurbished in the original style of the building. The music surrounds you! Classical music from the Baroque...More

This is a lovely old church in the heart of Melbourne. From an architectural perspective it is very interesting. Well worth going if you can actually get into the church.

The gentleman that greeted us as we entered could not have been friendlier. He gave us a pamphlet that described each of the stained glass windows. I liked the color tones to the stained glass windows - in browns and blues. Beautiful church.

This is the oldest Presbyterian Church in Melbourne the building having been started in the last 1800's Like any such church it is quite plain inside but very serene. It is a pity that the Church seems to have locked doors most of the time...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
