My place is 10 minutes walk to the iconic Victoria Market. Flagstaff Gardens just across the road. Ten minutes in the other direction will take you to Docklands where you can experience one of Melbourne's restaurant precincts. You will find yourself in the free tram zone so you can explore the city without the public transport costs. Ethihad Stadium a short 5 minute walk. Close to Errol Street, North Melbourne (15 minute walk), where the bars clubs and pubs are plentiful.
