Melbourne Zoo and Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium have plenty of animal attractions, from great big saltwater crocodiles to adorable seals and small elephants. For a lovely place to chillax in the city, try the Royal Botanic Gardens. This lush green oasis has thousands of species of plants and trees, and a tranquil lake to sit by.
Shopping, Dining and Nightlife
In Melbourne, you can turn shopping into a sport with a trip to Bourke Street, Swanston Street, Queen Victoria Market or one of Melbourne’s many other malls, boutiques, markets and retail hot spots. Good news for you lit lovers: Melbourne has more book shops than anywhere else in Australia, so you’ll always be able to find something to read on the tram. Drop into boutiques in trendy suburbs like Fitzroy, Collingwood and Brunswick, as well as some impressive op shops (yay!).
Looking for a bite to eat? You’re in luck! If you’ve got cash to splash, relax in an ambient setting and enjoy fine dining cuisine from around Australia and the world. Wander down streets like Lygon Street or Victoria Street for delicious Italian or Vietnamese. Taste succulent craft pizza in one of Melbourne’s gourmet pizzerias *drools*. And that’s just for starters when it comes to delish food. Don’t forget all the cool cafes hiding down Melbourne’s laneways, where you can pick up a tasty snack and a seriously good café latte.
Melbourne’s nightlife has it all: rooftop bars, beer gardens, cocktail lounges, disco-inspired nightclubs and rock and roll dive bars. Melbourne prides itself on being Australia’s live music capital, and venues like the iconic Corner Hotel always have something going on.
