During the summer months especially the city is buzzing with events and eterntainment. Melbourne provides a wide range of accommodation for a top price, in the centre, unless your willing to stay in the surrounding suburbs and reduce the nightly cost.
We decided to book ourselves 4 nights in a beautiful house just outside the city via airbnb.
With great public transport links, via the train and trams, and the availability of myki cards. Which provides unlimited travel on public transport during one day.
Making getting around Melbourne real easy. We spent a couple of days exploring central Melbourne, depsite reaching 40 degrees, we made the most out of exploring.
The shopping malls are a great location in this heat. We enjoyed spending a morning wandering around. The range of retailers is phenomenal.
Exploring the CBD is pretty easy, and a great way to discover what this vibrant city offers. The tram 35 is a hop on hop off step up, which links around the whole area, its free and informative of the various landmarks.
The Laneways in particular was a highlight, Melbournes tiniest streets filled with colourful Street art, cosy cafes and cool boutiques.
Rich in history, you can spot new builds are settled amongst the old giving the city a quirky and diverse feel.
Whilst in Melbourne, Walking along the Yarra river between north and south bank is a afternoon well spent.
With plenty of restaurants, bars, cafes and lovely grassy areas to enjoy a picnic. It’s perfect spot to absorb the atmosphere. In walking distance to the centre is one of the finest examples of Botanical gardens.
Perfect spot to surround yourself in nature and get away from the bustle of city life. With over 8000 species of plants it’s an interesting place.
Melbourne is a great hub when it’s comes to arts and culture. With a variety of events and exhibitions. The Melbourne museum was a great place to spent a whole afternoon, it was well worth the entry fee of $15 per adult.
With exhibitions giving visitors insights to fascinating experiences. The food scene is great for those foodies. Especially ourselves who enjoy sushi it was not hard to find great quality for low prices.
Overall Melbourne is a place you can enjoy, discover and spend lots of money.
