Melbourne Pub Crawl– What to do in Melbourne at night?

Melbourne Pub Crawl

If you are in Melbourne for a few days on your big trip to Australia, you should immerse yourself in the city’s colorful and lively nightlife at least once. 


You have probably heard one or the other story about Australian nights. That’s why I’ll give you a few useful tips for unforgettable nights in Melbourne in advance.

Nightlife in Melbourne – Where to party in Melbourne? 

Every city has its notable neighborhoods where young people romp: backpackers, students, and other young people. Melbourne’s hotspots are Fitzroy, the CBD, and St Kilda.


  • Hip Fitzroy: Whether during the day or for long nights, things are pretty turbulent. Pubs and hip bars ensure a lively nightlife.


  • In the middle of the CBD is Federation Square, a place where events often revolve around art and culture. As soon as the sun goes down, the locals gather here and roam the bars together or sit in the square to chat at sunset. 


  • Another spot I can recommend to you is St Kilda in the very south of Melbourne on the coast. Once one of the city’s classy neighborhoods, it has become increasingly popular with young locals and travelers over the years.
