See the city in its entirety at Eureka Skydeck
If you’re not sure which part of the city you’d like to tackle first, head on up 297 metres and take in the vast beauty from Melbourne from the sky. The Eureka Skydeck is the highest point in Melbourne, giving you incredible 360-degree views that you’ll want to capture for those holiday albums. If you want to take these sights to the next level, book tickets for the Edge Experience. Walking into what appears to be a glass room, you’ll find yourself in a cube projecting out the side of the Skydeck. Look down if you dare and see the street metres below your feet.
Find some treasures at Queen Victoria Market
A Melbourne trip is not complete without experiencing the bargains, delicious food and atmosphere of the Queen Victoria Market. With hundreds of stalls to explore from food and clothing to art and homewares, you’re sure to find items that tickle your fancy. Explore the markets for yourself or take advantage of one of the foodie tours, which are run by a local guide. On the tour, you’ll learn more about the market itself, discover amazingly fresh produce as well as learn about speciality foods you simply must try.
Make sure to take a look at the website before your visit as there are often special events held at the market to make it an even better experience. These include the Night Market, a dumpling festival and an event celebrating the glory that is cheese – yum!
Explore a whole new world in Melbourne’s many laneways
From finding a hidden restaurant that will become your new favourite, to quirky cafes and bars, Melbourne’s laneways are where the city comes to life. Possibly one of the best features of the laneways though is the incredible street art. Head to tourist favourites such as Hosier Lane, Centre Place and AC/DC lane or take a wander for yourself and see what you can find.
Get arty at the NGV
If you’re still feeling arty, head to the National Gallery of Victoria International (NGV). General entry is free and features a stunning collection of art that will leave you captivated. The NGV is quite large, and with such an extensive collection you’ll want to be wearing some comfortable shoes to see it all.
Spend a day exploring the Royal Botanic Gardens
Escape the hustle and bustle without having to leave the city, by spending the day at the Botanic Gardens. Entry is free and you are welcome to explore the gardens as you like. Bring a good book and a picnic blanket, get those runners on and go for a jog, treat yourself at one of the cafes – no matter how you want to enjoy your garden experience, you’re assured a great day out.
Meticulously planned or a spur of the moment adventure with no clear direction, you’re sure to find an abundance of things to explore, eat and do in vibrant Melbourne.
