Stylish, sporty and full of character…guys, Melbourne is like the best blind date ever. Australia’s cultural capital sits at the head of Port Phillip Bay and knows how to show a traveller a good time. From its stately, gold-rush era architecture to the Bohemian cafes in Fitzroy to the flashy restaurants and clubs of St. Kilda, Melbourne has a lot of layers.
Explore cuisine from around the world, study edgy street art or admire the skyline from a rooftop bar. And when you want to cut loose, the city’s obsession with AFL, cricket, horse racing and Formula One racing create an environment where it’s socially acceptable to shout, hoot and holler like a chimpanzee.
So pack your bags and prep your vocal cords! Just wait until after one of lastminute.com.au’s flights to Melbourne lands. You don’t want to scare the other passengers.
Getting Around Melbourne
Melbourne has this whole transportation thing down. Skybus will get you downtown, and the tram, bus and rail systems will have you racing through the city on your own. Of course, our car hire options and ever-present taxis are plentiful, too.
When You Land…
If you’re on one of our Melbourne flights that land in the morning, check out the souvenirs, produce and other finds at Queen Victoria Market.
Landing in the afternoon? Go right to Flinders Street Railway Station, the city’s most iconic landmark.
And if you land after dark, head to the St. Kilda neighbourhood and literally dance the night away in Melbourne’s 24-hour nightlife scene. Don’t worry; our Melbourne accommodation will be there whenever you decide to crash.
Live Like a Local
The one and only activity you can’t miss if you want to make the most of our Melbourne holiday packages is a footy match—no, not that thing you do when you’re quite fond of the person sitting across from you. We mean an AFL game…though you can certainly play footy with someone while watching footy. #meta
