You have no right to be bored in Melbourne. There is always a new event or attraction to see. Make the most of your visit and see these Melbourne things to do. Whether it’s your first time in the city or your thousandth, whether you’re there with your partner, friends or your family, you are going to find something exciting to discover.
Got any budding marine biologists in the family? Or are your kids just tired of being dragged from shop to shop? Give them a reason to brag to their friends when they get back from their trip. Take them to Melbourne Aquarium.
Teach your children the importance of preserving Australia’s precious marine life at Conservation Cove or introduce them to Pinjarra, one of Australia’s largest saltwater crocodiles in Croc Lair. You can even do shark dives in Mermaid Garden to get up close and personal with the grey nurse shark, one of the gentle giants of the sea.
The Aquarium is one of Australia’s favourite Melbourne things to do.
Whether you’re into science, history or culture, there’s a museum for you in Melbourne. Kids will love Scienceworks, an interactive museum that encourages them to get hands-on with the sciences. There’s a planetarium that will introduce them to the wonders of the universe, or show them that maths and chemistry aren’t boring at the many events and exhibitions.
Explore Australia’s proud multicultural history at the Immigration Museum or take a spooky night tour of the Old Melbourne Gaol. Just watch out for ghosts. Sports fans already know to visit the MCG. While there, they should see the National Sports Museum and Melbourne Museum to relive Australia’s proud history of Cricket, Football, Rugby, Horse Racing and countless other sports.
Visit one of Melbourne’s favourite suburbs. With Cafes, bars and restaurants lining the streets, a glorious beach and a few hidden shops, you will find something worth seeing in St. Kilda.
Here, you will find Luna Park Melbourne, one of the most iconic attractions in the city. With tonnes of rides, your kids will burn off their lunch in no time and be ready for a nap at your Melbourne accommodation.
A romantic weekend in Melbourne is not complete without a visit to the Yarra Valley. This beautiful wine trail is a one of the best things to do in Melbourne if you are looking for quality food and drink. Take an eco-adventure tour and see lyrebirds, wallabies and rainbow trout before settling down with a hearty meal.
Of course, the region’s main attraction is the range of wine, cider and ale that will pair nicely with your lunch. Take the whole day to explore this scenic hidden treasure of Melbourne.
