Accommodation in Melbourne
It’s holiday time, so pack your bags and head to Melbourne. As the capital of Victoria and the second-largest city in Australia, Melbourne has a lot to offer. It sits on the southern coast overlooking Port Phillip Bay, and boasts a vibrant culture. Known for hosting major music, art, and film festivals, the city also features various must-visit venues and museums, including the Victorian Arts Centre, Astor Theatre, National Gallery of Victoria, and the National Sports Museum, among others. During your holiday, learn the lay of the land by visiting the Eureka Skydeck. At the top—285 metres above ground—you’ll see all of Melbourne and its surroundings, from the Dandenong Ranges to Albert Park Lake. While you’re in town, get some fresh air and bushwalk along the Yarra River Trail and Coastal Art Trail, or paddle along the shores of St. Kilda and Brighton Beach. Spend your holiday shopping the high-end boutiques along Collins Street—also known as Paris End—or moseying around the Royal Botanic Gardens. To round out your getaway, make a stop at the Victoria Market and get lost browsing 600 market stalls that sell everything from fine cheese to kangaroo biltong. However you fill your itinerary, Melbourne will serve up an unforgettable retreat.
