Any suggestions please....on what can I do in Melbourne this Thursday????

The school is sending another teacher and me over to Melbourne for a conference this week..lucky me.!!!!!! 😊😊

By travelling over late on Wednesday we will have Thursday free to shop/explore the city etc..(well as much as we can do in one day)...before the conference on Friday and Saturday and then flying back to NZ early on not a lot of time to spend there 😓😢.

So what to do???? Any suggestions on shops to go to or things to see..good places to eat even...anything would be appreciated, so we can make the most of the day as I really don't know Melbourne at all.

We are both interested in patchwork and embroidery so are there any shops close to the city or easy to access on public transport.

We are staying out Camberwell way as it is closer to the school that the conference is being held at and won't take too long on the tram to get to there on Friday and Saturday.

Grateful thanks for any suggestions...



  1. Hi Lyn how exciting for you ,i hope someone from Melb can help you ,sorry i am no help i go there with friends and follow them,lol,but melb is such a beautiful place,i love going to Lucellos but its in the centre of Melb,i dont think i have ever been to Camberwell,cant wait to see what you get up to my friend xx

  2. Hi Lyn I was going to suggest Lucello 's as well Kim has some great things in her shop.Fabrics vintage baby check her site

  3. The Nicholson Building is the place to be.... one corner from Flinders street station... Lucello's,

    The button shop

    Kimono house quilt shop

    . I think there is still a quilt shop in Camberwell. I haven't been there for years though....

    I hope some others can help you out....

  4. I'm sure there will be some Melbourne bloggers that can advice you as I only visited Melbourne for the first time last year BUT if you go into the city and have the chance do visit HOPETOUN CAFE.... they have the most amazing Cakes 😋

  5. This will be of no use to you Lyn, sorry... but if I had any time in Melbourne, I'd want to spend it with my cousin... she's the closest thing I have to a sister.
    I hope you enjoy your day & the time in Melb - take your warm clothes!!
