Princes Hill Vacations
Lygon Street, Brunswick Street and Fitzroy, are other places in the area which are also worth discovering.
Be sure to visit some of the nearby museums and galleries, which help make the area the special place it is. Spend a quiet afternoon admiring the exhibits at Melbourne Museum in Carlton and the Royal Exhibition Building. Visit the Ian Potter Museum of Art in Carlton, to get your fix of art.
If you are travelling with kids, take them to the family attractions nearby. Come and meet Melbourne’s furry, feathered and finned residents at Melbourne Zoo in Parkville.
To surround yourself with nature, go and check out the nearby parks and reserves. These are great places to relax. There are no shortage of green escapes, so why not take a break in Royal Park in Parkville and Princes Park.
If you could do with a spot of retail therapy, shop til you drop amid the boutiques, stores and stalls that are part of the Queen Victoria Market.
Spend an afternoon watching the Carlton Football Club take on the opposition on their home ground, Etihad Stadium. If you happen to be staying in Princes Hill with someone who lives and breathes sports, why not treat them to one of Etihad Stadium’s fascinating back stage tours.
