    hello to everyone in Victoria! I love your state and your city. I visit at least once a year for a holiday from S.A, and lets face it, getting out of Adelaide is good for any reason!
    I would like to get opinions from the Melbourne experts (u guys) on what are good and interesting places to visit, to eat at, which is the best cinema etc. anything not so well known to outside visitors like me but u guys think are great and love to do over there. i'd appreciate any suggestions since i'm bringing my best friend over there next weekend and want to show him everything possible during the 4 days. Bear in mind we have to tram it from St. Kilda for the most part.

    ***hmm... maybe i should bring my ep1 obi-wan lightsabre over and meet someone for a duel?***

    also are there any good collector and/or toy shops for star wars figures, vehicles and the likes, i know there is one across from hard rock cafe, is there any better ones than that?

    If its not too cold when you get down have a look under Mornington Pier. A train and a bus should easily get you there from the city and its worth it for some stunning clod water snorkelling.

    Failing that make sure you check out the Queen Vic Market, they sell anything and everything.

    If its illegal, it'll be in the Queen Vic.

    I reckon for the best meal in the southern hemisphere, Flower Drum in Chinatown, get the Peking Duck, unbeatable.

    Part from that, get down to the Footy if you can!! MCG!! Yeeaahhh!!

    It looks like you need Chapel Street. It's got everything you need.

    It's got a fantastic Village cinema complex at the Jam Factory.

    It's got hundreds of great places to eat at.

    And it's got a bunch of comic book and collector stores.

    Chapel Street has everything.

    And if you wanna get a look at the more Boganish side of life, Frankston is youre place, complete with its own revheads, bums, and muggers...top place!

    Frankston also has a bustling streetfighting community.

    Oh, thats just PoT and his mates, remember, if you do decide to brave Frankston, steer clear of The Pines!!!

    Yeah, I stop well before Frankston, even though my beloved train line is named after it. Frankly (not to be confused with Frank-stoners), I don't mind Frankston that much. Just as long as you're driving through it down the freeway to Rye. :D

    RYE???!!!!

    Anyway, ignoring that, I agree with Jacques and PoT, the Queen Vic Market. Chapel St is good too, but take a day off and visit the "rural fringe" - Mornington, Safety Beach. Tell you what a bus trip to Phillip Island is worth it too... I know it's all touristy and everything, but they have the best Fish and Chips and the sunsets are breathtaking.

    The peninsula is cool. I wouldn't mind living there, but you miss out on all the cool stuff in the city; like Brunswick St, Lygon St etc...
