Take a break in Melbourne without breaking the bank or getting caught up in the hustle and bustle of the city centre. Just 25 minutes from the Melbourne CBD, our Fawkner hotels provide the ultimate respite from the daily grind.Things to do
You simply can't visit Fawkner without spending some time in Fawkner Park, so you may as well make it the first destination on your bucket list. This park was named after Melbourne's co-founder, John Pascoe Fawkner, and has been here since 1862, offering a little slice of shady paradise to visitors. Visit the tennis club or have a game of cricket on the lawn before settling in with a good book on one of the park benches or firing up a barbeque for a picnic lunch. Can't be bothered self catering? No worries! Just grab a bite to eat in the cafe next to the tennis courts.
Keen cyclists can get on their bikes and tackle the Upfield Bike Trail or the Western Ring Road Trail, which are both scenic and challenging. If your legs have still got some oomph left in them, you can go for a stroll around Merri Creek and check out the native wildlife.Shopping and dining
Although Fawkner is best known for its car yards, you can grab some great threads in one of the boutique stores along Bonwick Street. And whenever you need a pit stop to refuel, you can pop into one of the local cafes or Italian restaurants, which are pretty well-renowned in these parts.Getting here and around
