Unique Places In Melbourne To Take Friends
We found this wonderful article by Lauren Vadnjal about places to take friends visiting from out of town.
What stood out was the uniqueness of the places, definitely not your run of the mill touristy spots but all well known and worthy of visiting.

Unique Melbourne Places
1. Naked in the Sky, Fitzroy
Gratituous cityscape photo from cool rooftop bar: check. Naked for Satan
2. Rucker's Hill, Northcote
The lesser known (and less busy) spot to get a cityscape shot from the north. Plus, there are usually a few food trucks parked there for dinner. Bonus. Map
3. Fairfield Boathouse, Fairfield
You can actually rent a rowboat and go out on the water. Wait 'til your friends find out you can do that in Melbourne. Fairfield Boathouse
4. The Astor Theatre, St Kilda
They just saved the damn thing, so the least you could do it go see a movie in its grand, classic cinema. The Astor Theatre
5. Easey's, Collingwood
Combine their weird fascination with trams with something far cooler - eat a burger in a tram on the rooftop of a building in Collingwood. Easey's Bar & Grill
6. Capital City Trail, Melbourne
If they're confident on two wheels, take them on a tour of the city via the Capital City Trail . Sure, it's a 30km tour, but you don't have to commit to the whole thing. Just do a section and call lunch.
7. South Melbourne Market, South Melbourne
If you don't want to battle the Queen Vic Market, South Melbourne Market is a better alternative. It's much more chilled, it's quaint and there are heaps of cute cafes close by.
8. Lui Bar, CBD
Luxe cocktails on the 55th floor of a luxe building. Duh. Lui Bar
9. Collingwood Children's Farm, Abbotsford
You should do this because baby animals are cute, and no guest can argue with that. And The Farm Cafe there is really pleasant too. Collingwood Children's Farm
10. Lune Croissanterie, Elwood
That is, if they're not opposed to getting up at 6am. If they're are opposed, just show 'em the sweet, flaky pastry photos. lunecroissanterie.com
11. Doughboys Doughnuts, CBD
And if you can't get them up for pastries pre-7am, this is the ultimate alternative for sweet lovers who wanna sleep in; fresh, hand-dipped doughnuts. doughboysdoughnuts.com.au
12. Half Moon Bay, Black Rock
Arguably Melbourne's best hideaway beach. Even if it's not swimming weather, go for the fish and chips, and sand between your toes. Map
13. Heide Museum of Modern Art, Bulleen
Some of Melbourne's best art, in the best leafy location. Take a picnic! Heide | Museum of Modern Art
14. Twerkshop, Fitzroy
Make their only Tuesday night in Melbourne one to remember. Get low in this "ghetto zumba"class, and get a beer after. FB
15. Market Lane Coffee, Prahran
So they can see how it's really done. marketlane.com.au
