Melbourne, Australia’s second city, is the capital of the state of Victoria in southeast Australia. It is known as a centre for the arts, entertainment, sport and tourism as well as being a hub of industry and commerce. It is often referred to as the “Cultural Capital of Australia”.

Things to Do in Melbourne, Australia

Like most major cities, Melbourne has many parks, great shopping and plenty of cultural attractions. The Immigration Museum gives an informative display of the personal and moving stories of the early immigrants. The historic Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens also have a unique place in Australia’s early history and it is well worth taking a guided tour. Cricket fans can watch a match at the Melbourne Cricket Grounds where Aussie Rules Football is also played. Those staying in holiday rentals in Melbourne will be able to take advantage of the renowned restaurants and cafés from Chinatown to trendy St Kilda Beach. Melbourne has many beautiful sandy beaches which are perfect for swimming, surfing, fishing and volleyball. Go sailing, kitesurfing or windsurfing at Port Philip Bay or take a dawn balloon ride over the Yarra Valley.

On a historic note, the Old Melbourne Gaol has an interesting past with some macabre exhibits including death masks and the scaffold where Ned Kelly was hung. It also re-creates various historic scenarios to entertain visitors.

5 of 5
My wife and I spent 10 days in this apartment and it was great. The location across from Southern Cross station is fantastic if travelling by bus,train or plane. We arrived at 11pm from the airport and Daniel arranged a pickup point in the bus station and it worked perfectly. Apartment was clean and well equipped. We would highly recommend this unit. Etihad stadium across the street if you want to take in a footy game, we did it was fun. Traveller from Canada

We, family of 4 (2A 2Children),had stayed in a entire unit with 2 bed room apt for 5 night. The apt had full amenities like kitchen and laundry and the location is just about 5 min walk to Melbourne Central station, it's easy to access the whole CBD area. Cosy place , quiet and clean. The host Brian was very helpful,friendly and is a very nice host. They even provide transfer to and return to Airport wth a very reasonable price.(I highly recommend you to book the transport from him, you can save all the trouble for booking a taxi or shuttle). I will definitely stay here again If,I come back to Mel. I am highly recommended this place to everyone who are visiting Mel to stay here. Cheer.
