Melway Street Directories

A detailed street directory can be a valuable resource for anyone who wants to know where they are going and how to find the locations of businesses and sites they wish to visit. Many residents of Melbourne, Australia rely on Melway street directories to get them where they want to go, and Melway books have been available to Melburnians and visitors to Melbourne since 1966. In addition to the city of Melbourne, Melway includes street directory information on the suburbs of the Greater Melbourne, and offers many book styles, editions, and product accessories.

Book Contents

A Melway street directory has a height of 290 mm and a width of 220 mm, but it packs a great deal of information within its pages. The directory covers the Melbourne area to Geelong and Bacchus Marsh in the west, Warburton and Tynong in the east, Whittlesea, Wallan, and Kinglake in the north, and Mornington Peninsula in the south. The highly comprehensive street directory also includes the locations of bicycle and walking paths as well as routes for buses, trains, and trams.

Book Styles

Each year, Melway offers several book edition options of its collection of street directories. A Melway with a flexible cover may help a reader prolong the life of the Melway directory because it can reduce the amount of wear and tear of the cover when it gets a great deal of use. People who like street directories with details that are easier to see may prefer to choose a Melway large print street directory edition.

Collector's Editions

Many people who enjoy seeing how much their hometowns changed over the years can find past editions of their local street directories to chart that progress. A Melway street directory published only a few years ago can appear very different from a newer edition. Melway's first directory book, the Melway Commemorative 1966 1st Edition, outlines the many changes Melbourne experienced since the 1960s.


Copies of hardcover street directories are often popular because the books get a great deal of use. However, several accessories are available to protect Melway street directories from damage. The Melway clear protective cover is effective against spills, and the padded leather construction of the Ausway official street directory cover keeps a Melway in excellent condition for many years.
