What to do in Melbourne
Melbourne has been labelled as the cultural capital of Australia. It’s also one of the top destination cities in the world. With many art galleries, film festivals, vibrant live music scene, and a strong food culture, travellers don’t find it hard to love the city. And you’ll love it too!
Take the Melbourne Visitor Shuttle to see the art at Melbourne Museum and the National Gallery of Victoria. Be at the city’s centre and go to the Parliament House. You also can’t miss the Old Melbourne Gaol, Flinders Street Station, the Town Hall and St. Paul’s Cathedral in Melbourne.
Are you a sports fan? Good news because Melbourne’s also our sporting capital. Watch a cricket match or a football game with local sports fanatics at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and Etihad Stadium. Get to know the locals even more and join one of their festivals like the Moomba festival, the Melbourne Fringe Festival, and the Melbourne International Arts Festival.
You can also feel the essence of Melbourne by exploring its laneways and arcades like Degraves Street, where you’ll find a wonderland of cafes, restaurants, cool shops, and street art
If shopping is more your style, ride the City Circle Tram for free to Bourke Street Mall. Buy awesome products and fresh produce at Queen Victoria Market. Go bargain hunting in Footscray and Collins Street, or sightsee while you shop at Collins Place. Then round up your shopping spree back at the Central Business District in Melbourne Central.
To fill up your camera with the best views of Melbourne, visit Eureka Tower’s skydeck. But for Melbourne’s natural sceneries, travel to Dandenong ranges for the sights and outdoor activities. Finally, your trip here wouldn’t be complete without touring the Great Ocean Road.
