Some of Melbourne’s delights can be found in the string of suburbs that thread their way around the world’s most livable city’s Bay – Port Phillip. Spanning from Port Melbourne, entry point to an armada of post-war migrants and cosmopolitan St Kilda, they curve their way past Brighton’s posh real estate and on to family-friendly Hampton, neighbouring Sandringham and beyond.
Once the go-to place for bric-a-brac and daggy frock shops, Hampton now exudes an air of seaside sophistication boasting numerous cafes, trendy hairdressers and smart boutiques along its main street. The farmers’ market, held on the third Saturday morning of the month, overlooks the local yacht club and is the ideal moment that brings the community and country-fresh produce together.
Come with us while we spend a little time looking at Melbourne’s little secret spots.
