A Guide to Melbourne

Diversely cosmopolitan, dynamic and sophisticated, the capital city of Victoria has an effervescent mix of intrigue, history and class. With roots firmly planted in the Gold Rush era, evidence of its fascinating Victorian era past can be seen everywhere. This massive metropolis, perched on the coast of Port Phillip Bay, is a frenzied mix of lush leafy suburbs, historical sites and cutting edge urban culture. Even though there is such a vast array of cultures in the city, they all speak a universal language, one of sheer and utter devotion to the Australian Football League, or AFL.

Good to Know

The weather here could not be predicted for love or money, especially during the spell between the end of autumn and the start of spring. One minute you could be sweltering in the heat, the next running for cover with a sudden downpour. When visiting Melbourne, remember you won't really ever get cold, but the chances of you getting caught in the rain are excellent, so pack accordingly. There is a small reprieve from the steamy heat of summer from May to October, but the winter is mild and not cold.

Things to See and Do in Melbourne

City Laneways - Experience the inner city hive at the heart of Melbourne. Here you will find an abundance of stylish restaurants, exclusive boutiques, trendy bars, loads of little cafes, and hidden away treasure troves full of delights, and some of the most unusual places you will ever see.

Wilsons Promontory National Park - This massive coastal reserve is home to an abundance of wildlife, walking paths, camp grounds and even a marine reserve. Breathtaking and spectacular, it is the perfect outdoor destination for the whole family.

Queen Victoria Market - Opening in the late 1800s, this incredible market has grown from strength to strength. You will need the better part of a day to explore here; buy anything from the freshest seafood, home made goods, clothes, shoes, toys and fresh produce.

Puffing Billy Steam Train - Spend the day exploring the breath taking countryside of Victoria on an historic steam train. An ideal day trip for a family.

Collingwood Children's Farm - This rustic spot on the banks of the Yarra River has an interactive farm which is just perfect for kids. Kids can interact with lambs, ponies, cows, goats and loads of other animals. Visit the Farmers Market for some yummy country fare afterwards.

Phillip Island - Take a day tour out to magnificent Phillip Island and visit the legendary penguin colony that is resident there. Go wine and cheese tasting, visit the chocolate factory and cuddle a koala.

Melbourne Aquarium - Sub arctic penguins, spiky lion fish, rays, sharks, fresh water marine life, seahorses and underwater jellies are just some of the exciting attractions that will delight every visitor.

Eureka Skydeck 88 - You will need to decide quickly if you can go all the way to the top, as the lift bolts you up 88 levels in 40 seconds. Make your way to the edge, which is a glass cubed platform that extends some 10 feet out from the building, offering the most spectacular 360 degree view of the city.

Black Light Mini Golf - 18 holes of mini golf under black lights at the Docklands. An exciting chance to play the game with fluorescents with a truly unique Australian theme.

Suga - Watch the fascinating process of how hard candy is made by hand, and if you arrive lunch time, you can also taste some of what is being made at the same time.
