Things to See & Do

City of Melbourne (10.5km)

Melbourne is a maze of underground bars and shopping steals. There is no one particular thing to do in Melbourne, so make the most of laneways brimming with food vendors and fashion retailers at Melbourne Central train station or Bourke Street mall. If you sway more towards sporting and recreation, you have found your home. Melbourne has a steady flow of sports events year round, from cricket to rugby, and soccer to tennis, which means you will have ample opportunity to catch a game or two while you’re in town.

Ace Karts

Experience real life racing at Ace Go Karts. Outdoors. Under glowing floodlights. In the rain. The track captures the excitement of real racing. And it means you'll race exactly as the racing gods intended – in all conditions. A series of intensifying bends will test the limits of your cornering skills. And a 105m straight will push your kart to its capacity.

Eureka Skydeck

Experience breathtaking views of Melbourne from up high. The Eureka Skydeck offers 88 spectacular angles of the CBD. Our park offers a 10% discount for entry on the Eureka Skydeck. It's Melbourne's must-see attraction!

Melbourne Star (10km)

Melbourne Star is the perfect introduction of the city centre for all visitors. Each of the 21 cabins will give you an unparalleled, air conditioned tour of the Melbourne skies accompanied by a running commentary. The Melbourne Star is the southern hemispheres only giant observation wheel and boasts a spectacular light show. There are more than 15 million different lighting combinations which make for a spectacular sensory experience

Ask at reception for your 10% discount voucher.

The Melbourne Aquarium (11km)

The Melbourne Aquarium is home to thousands of aquatic animals and fun especially for children. You can also watch the staff feed the animals daily, go through a behind the scenes tour and be amazed at their floor-to-ceiling fish tank. Interactive displays and stunning visuals will entertain and educate on everything there is to know about the Penguins natural environment – the coldest, windiest and driest continent in the world. Melbourne Aquarium is a must-see visitor attraction.

Ask at reception for your VIP pass to jump queues and get 20% off.

 

Queen Victoria Markets (10km)

If you want to get all your shopping done in one, affordable trip, the QVM is for you. Clothing, art, fresh fruit and vegetables, liquor, gifts, flowers and more are thrown together at this central Melbourne location for optimum utilisation by busy Melbourners. Getting in early is the ticket you will get the vendors at their wittiest, the food at its freshest and the artists at their most caffeinated.

Melbourne Zoo and Werribee Open Range Zoo (9km)

Family holidays in Melbourne don’t need to be a mess of loud trams and souvenirs and Krispy Kreme-tantrums. Hit the road and head north to the Melbourne Zoo for a day of fun. No matter how old you are, you will find something here that will widen your eyes. The Butterfly House is filled with tropical and subtropical butterflies that will happily flutter onto your shoulder or outstretched hand. Lions, zebras, meerkats and elephants are also competing for your attention so be sure to make them happy too.

Melbourne Showgrounds (5.5km)

Check out the showgrounds for exhibitions that will catch your interest. This venue showcases anything from Melbourne’s Cake and International Coffee expo to the Supanova Pop Culture expo. All exhibitions are temporary so if you see something you like, go as soon as you can.

MCG and Etihad Stadiums (14km & 10km)

 Victoria prides itself on these two sports arenas. It’s not uncommon for each stadium to be bursting with fans on the same night, for two very different events. Both stadiums offer tours of the grounds, bars and eateries on the night of a big game or concert. You can either add the tour onto the end of a day of shopping in Melbourne, or buy tickets to a sports game and experience it that way.
