Begin your holiday to Melbourne.
Melbourne’s mix of culture, attractive architecture and tram filled streets offer a real fusion of new and old. Head to Flinders street station, opened in 1854, to marvel at its domed roof and large entrance steps. Melbourne’s laneways are packed full of stylish independent cocktail bars, amazing coffee shops and trendy foods from all over the world. Take a stroll down Hosier Lane and wonder at the array of street art, made famous by local and international artists. Head down the bohemian Brunswick street, the perfect place to grab a cooling pot or schooner.
Take in some history by visiting The Old Melbourne Gaol, in operation as a prison between 1842 and 1929, which housed some of the world’s most notorious prisoners from Ned Kelly to the Australian gangster Squizzy Taylor.
After the hustle of Melbourne’s city centre, escape for some fresh air at its Royal Botanic Gardens. Take in the diverse plants at your leisure or take part in the Aboriginal Heritage walk, or a free guided tour led by Indigenous guides. See the park come to life in the summer evenings when an outdoor cinema, theatre performances and exhibitions take place.
Take in the views of the city at Melbourne’s Star Observation Wheel standing proud at 120m tall. From its heights, gaze unobstructed as far as Port Phillip and the Dandenongs all the while sipping some sparkling wine, beer and munching canapes.
Follow the trail on a Grafitti tour of Melbourne’s laneways.
Jump on the free circular tram to get your bearings of this grid style city.
