For the Intrepid
Melbourne is open for business, shopping, dining, exploration and of course, coffee. We’ve missed you, and while you’ve been staying safe at home, we’ve been supporting our local businesses and creating a captivating Melbourne for residents to enjoy and visitors to return to.
All around Australia, local communities are ready and waiting to welcome you. So stop in for a coffee, take that tour and book that boutique stay you've been dreaming about. It's up to us to eat, drink, shop and explore local so we can all recover together. Supporting local is all about strengthening Aussie communities, boosting jobs and reducing your own carbon footprint. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to support local on your next trip. You might spend a night (or two!) in a bushfire-affected region, buy farm-fresh produce or book an eco-friendly experience. When you support local, you can be sure that while you’re making memories, you’re also making a difference.
