1. Explore the City's Laneways

Location:Melbourne CBD

Filled with quirky alleyways, hidden shops, art galleries and indie theatres, it certainly earns its reputation as Australia’s culture capital. Melbourne simply wouldn’t be Melbourne without its laneways, and simply exploring the city serves as viable entertainment in itself.

2. Explore the Zoos & Aquarium

Location:Various locations

The city and its surrounds are rich in both zoos and aquariums, both of which are generally quite reasonably priced and provide a great destination to take the kids or to spend some time if the notoriously unreliable Melbourne weather turns sour. All ends of the wildlife spectrum are covered between the attractions; Melbourne Zoo is large and has the most diversity, Healesville Sanctuary is ideal for those wanting to encounter Australian natives, Werribee is an open display of African-style savannah, and SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium has all the underwater goodness you might expect.

3. Travel to Phillip Island

Location:Phillip Island

One of the most popular natural destinations located outside of Melbourne, Phillip Island is especially famous for one reason, its penguins. With a trip to Phillip Island, you’ll be able to watch thousands of Little Penguins make their way to shore every night at the home of the world’s largest Little Penguin colony, an occurrence which is known as the Penguin Parade at Phillip Island Nature Parks.

4. Travel the Great Ocean Road

Location:Between Torquay and Allansford

Often acclaimed as the most stunning drive in Australia, the Great Ocean Road stretches over an expanse of 243km along the Victorian Coast. The sheer array of vistas and views on offer with a trip along the Great Ocean Road is staggering and can be explored either on your own or with an organised tour.

5. Browse the Queen Victoria Markets

Location:513 Elizabeth St, Melbourne

Those with a need for knick-knacks will be in their element with a visit to Melbourne’s Queen Victoria Markets, a bustling outdoor hub with an item, souvenir or meal to suit pretty much every taste. This is the Queen of all markets and the vibrant, exciting mix of cultures and ethnicities of Melbourne can be discovered here, with a variety of foods and souvenirs from all corners of the Earth on offer.

6. Visit the Dandenong Ranges

Location:Dandenong Ranges

Those looking for a dose of nature while getting out of the city for a day or two can look inland and head towards the lush reaches of the greater Melbourne region’s Dandenong Ranges, an area that’s both scenic and provides several unique activities of its own. The majestic mountain range is famed for its towering Mountain Ash trees and features a blend of wonderful scenery, spots to get fantastic local food, charming little villages and small stores offering various hand-crafted goods.

7. See St. Paul's Cathedral & Flinders Street Station

Location:Flinders & Swanson Streets, Melbourne CBD

St. Paul’s Cathedral is a truly stunning building constructed in typical Gothic style, sitting just across the road from Melbourne’s historic Flinder’s Street Station. St. Paul’s Cathedral is just as impressive inside as out, with the interior boasting impressive craftsmanship with wooden pews, carvings on the walls and stained glass. Flinders Street Station is also a respectable piece of architecture and is one of the busiest train stations in the city while also being one of the most beautiful.

8. Go Hot Air Ballooning

Location:Various locations

Take in the beauty of the city as the sun rises and enjoy a bird’s eye view of all that you survey amidst the pure calm and serene skies. Balloon flights typically depart very early in the morning to take advantage of the calm morning air, so you’ll get the added benefit of seeing Melbourne illuminated by the glow of the sunrise which makes for a particularly scenic experience.

9. Visit the Shrine of Remembrance

Location:Birdwood Ave, Melbourne

The Shrine itself is worthy of spending some time at observing and contemplating, not only for the views but the solemn beauty of its surrounds. The Shrine is one of the focal points for annual ANZAC ceremonies in Australia and sits amongst some immaculately kept gardens.

10. Look out from Eureka Skydeck

Location:7 Riverside Quay, Southbank

Enjoy awe-inspiring views of Melbourne from the Southern Hemisphere’s highest viewing platform; Eureka Skydeck. For those that dare to take sightseeing a step further, you’ll be able to experience Skydeck’s The Edge, an activity that will see you taken over the edge in a glass box, with views directly down into the cityscape.
