Neighborhood - CBD

As much a culture and dining hub as it is a business district, the CBD has plenty of clubs, bars and chic eateries on its street art–plastered laneways. Shoppers throng the ornate 19th-century arcades and sprawling Queen Victoria Market, known for its gourmet food halls. Federation Square offers Australian art at the Ian Potter Centre, and art-house films and movies at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image.
