We've been calling Melbourne's inner north home for upwards of eight years now! In that time we've discovered some awesome places to eat, some cool things to do, and developed a lot of affection for the neighbourhood. Brunswick, Carlton, Fitzroy and Collingwood are relatively flat and when the weather's good they're well suited to cycling. (Trams, the occasional bus and a waterproof hoodie each serve us well enough at other times.)

Here's how we'd make the most of the area if given 12 hours.
