Where to stay in Melbourne

The hub of tourist and commercial activity, the center of Melbourne remains the best place to stay if you're looking to splurge and enjoy every possible modern amenity during your visit. Travelers on a limited budget can search for cozy yet less expensive rooms in the seaside suburb of St Kilda or the bohemian neighborhood of Fitzroy. Though the city center offers more than a fair share of mid-range lodging options, you'll also find plenty of rooms in this price bracket in the quieter suburbs.

  • Sunday afternoon visit to attend mass and say a few prayers. Centrally located in the heart of Melbourne and one of the oldest churches around. Take the time to look around at the architecture and art...  more »
  • St Francis Church was directly across from where we were staying (it was what we saw when we looked out our hotel window), so we were curious to see the interior. It is a lovely church inside with an ...  more »

  • a go-to-church - elderly priests are inspiring, holding the line against happy clappy Christianity and empty formalism. and a beautiful Marian chapel
  • Conveniently located. It does give me a sense of calmness amidst the madness of working days. Most priests are elderly, they come prepared with good sermons but don't expect lively presentation. The Church needs more prayers & support from us.
  • Melbourne's first Catholic Cathedral in 1848. This place is an oasis in the middle of the CBD's hustle and bustle. It is a place that will give you a time to reflect and calm down. Mass times are offered several times during weekdays, weekend and Sunday. The Priests are very friendly and welcoming to all. This place is a gem.
  • My husband and I are here from Perth, visiting Melbourne for the very first time. We decided to attend the 12.05pm Mass. I left, feeling a sense of calm, peace and joy. The homily was short, simple and very meaningful and the congregation participated wholeheartedly in the prayers and singing. I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity of being part of such a beautiful service.
  • Beautiful Church, you light real candles and Church is opened all day, right in centre of the city. Confessions every day. So peaceful
