Fitzroy is an inner-city suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 3 km north-east of Melbourne's Central Business District in the local government area of the City of Yarra. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Rippon Lea and Old Cheese Factory. Get some historical perspective at Abbotsford Convent and St Mark's Anglican Church. Change things up with these side-trips from Fitzroy: Kinglake National Park (in Whittlesea), Werribee Open Range Zoo (in Werribee) and Melton Botanic Garden (in Melton). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Scienceworks, identify plant and animal life at Blackburn Lake Sanctuary, stroll through St. Kilda Beach, and explore the striking landscape at Organ Pipes National Park.

To find ratings, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Fitzroy trip planner.
