If you think your food options in Melbourne late at night are limited to convenience stores and kebab shops, think again. Butchers Diner (pictured) never closes, so you can have a juicy burger or steak 24 hours. Shujinko in the CBD does 24-hour ramen, while Arlechin has delicious Italian food, elegant European ambience and a closing time of 3am.

You may be familiar with Eureka Skydeck and its 360-degree views which include landmarks like the MCG and Federation Square. But here’s a bonus: you can go there at night. This stunning attraction at Riverside Quay shuts at 10pm each night (last entry 9.30pm) so you can be there for the sunset or to see some glittering city lights.


Crown Casino
