melbourne gay guide


Australia's second largest city, with a thriving gay scene and the Midsumma festival just so that Sydney can't claim it all! The Yarra River is not a patch on Sydney's harbour according to those north of the border, but Melbourne-ites claim it is the cultural capital of Australia!

Check the General Info page for an overview of Melbourne and Being Gay for general tips on gay life in Australia. If you know of a gay venue that is not listed here see get listed. If you have some comments on a venue, send me some email or feedback.

Gay venues in Melbourne include hotels/guest houses, bars and pubs, discos, restaurants, saunas and other sex venues. There are two sets of listings, one by type (hotel, bar, etc) with a full description, the other with name and address only grouped by area to make cruising easier. There are also listings for gay businesses and services, and for gay commercial sex services.

The main concentrations of gay places in Melbourne are in/near Collingwood just north of the city, and in the bayside and southern suburbs around St Kilda and trendy South Yarra, with a scattering of venues in other areas.
