vintage knick-knacks that you will feel as if you're
in a huge and busy museum. By contrast, at the
northern end of Chapel Street, South Yarra and Windsor

I have walked from the hotel to MOPT via birrang- mar . Its doable but would not recommend. The city has great public transportation so renting a car is not essential.
