Fitzroy is the heart of Melbourne’s bohemian culture. It has significant shopping, dining and entertainment experiences to offer. Visitors should try to visit during Melbourne’s Fringe Festival, which takes place in Fritzroy. There are a number of small art and photography galleries around town and live music is common in bars, pubs, clubs and cafes.
Visitors interested in history will be pleased to know that many of Fitzroy’s buildings and sights are protected and the city is involved in the historic preservation of the area. Edwardian and Victorian design can both be found.
