There is so much to do and see in and around Melbourne that it’s best to plan your days out in advance so you don’t miss out. In the inner city, uncover the hip laneways where surprise boutiques and chilled cafes are tucked away – stumbling across your favourite gem is a rite of passage here.
Dining out in Melbourne can be difficult – not due to a lack of options but the opposite – which area should you head to for the best meal! Hipster Fitzroy Street in St Kilda attracts a bustling crowd nightly or consider the seaside eateries nearby. If you love to feast on the best Italian then Lygon Street is your jam. After you’ve feasted, round off your night at one of the city’s cool rooftop bars.
If you’re a sports fan then Melbourne is the city for you! Consider tying your trip in with one of the annual events that hit the city – including the Melbourne Cup, Australian Open, Formula 1 Grand Prix and, of course, a seasonal Aussie Rules football match. Take a sports tour with Melbourne Sports Tour if you’re interested in seeing the iconic Melbourne grounds where these events take place.
