Why locals love it

Even if you're not going to buy a book, Hill of Content is a feast for the eyes. The narrow shopfront of the multi-storey bookstore hides what's really going inside. The friendly staff have arranged hundreds of titles across every genre on charming wooden cases and tables, and the old wooden staircases are a marvel to tread on.

Why you should visit it

Melbourne is the cultural capital of Australia, and its landmarks are the hundreds of cafés, theatres, and charming little bookstores like Hill of Content. There are occasional book signings and other events held at the store, where you can get a real insight into the gritty soul of Melbourne's writing scene.

Special tip

The books can be a little more expensive than at other bookstores, but the pretty paper packaging is a good reason to make a purchase.
