Featuring categories such as fine dining, casual dining, very Melbourne, late night, hidden Melbourne, coffee and chef faves – the map offers the world’s culinary elite an easy to way to make the most of their time in Australia’s favourite food city.

The map also features six walking trails of one or two kilometres in length, with suggested places to stop in and around the city centre. Trails include; It’s where?, Up late, Very Melbourne, Collingwood & Fitzroy trail, Chapel Street wander and St Kilda stroll – taking in some of the city’s most interesting foodie neighbourhoods and eat streets.
