Holidays in Southbank

With many of the city's best attractions nearby, Southbank is a dream for sightseers. From the Crown Casino and Entertainment Complex to Federation Square, there's lots to keep visitors like yourself amused. Don't forget to put St. Kilda Beach and Luna Park on your list as well. A great way to soak up this city is to stop by some of its neighbourhoods. So why not venture to nearby Southbank Promenade and South Melbourne and explore their sights and sounds?

Searching for some inspiration on things to do in the centre of the city? Kick off your sightseeing adventure at the University of Melbourne and the RMIT University. The Melbourne Zoo and Melbourne Aquarium are also a few of the area's biggest draws.

The Carlton and United Breweries, the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, Melbourne Seaplanes and Young & Jackson's are great excuses to kick back and relax.

A few interesting cultural places are waiting for you. Start the day at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, the Primrose Potter Australian Ballet Centre, the Über Gallery and the Uplands Gallery.

While you're able to view more and more art on your laptop these days, there's nothing like inspecting the real thing. Explore the area's creative side by visiting the National Gallery of Victoria, the Ian Potter Museum of Art, the Linden Arts Centre & Gallery and the Johnston Collection.

If you luck out and get stuck with some miserable weather, take refuge in the Melbourne Museum, the Immigration Museum, the National Sports Museum and the Jewish Museum of Australia. The fascinating collections are sure to keep your brain buzzing and your clothes dry!

What nicer way to finish a day's activities than with something to eat and a performance? Check the programme listings at the Forum Theatre, the Regent Theatre, the Sun Theatre and the Princess Theatre.

Fancy a round of golf? Get on some khaki slacks, polish your clubs and get ready to do your best Tiger Woods impression at the Albert Park Golf Course, the Yarra Bend Golf Course and the Westgate Golf Course.

Kids don't want to spend all day cooped up in the hotel. Let them have some fun and spend a day at one or two of the area's action-packed attractions. You can choose from St. Kilda Sea Baths, Melbourne City Baths, the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel and Westgate Park.

Eureka Skydeck 88, Merri Creek Trail, the CERES Community Environment Park and Fitzroy Aboriginal Heritage Walking Trail are among the most impressive spots for nature enthusiasts to spend time outdoors.

A good way of checking the ocean's temperature is by removing your shoes and socks and going for a little paddle. Feel what the water's like at South Melbourne Beach and Middle Park Beach.

Get you legs moving at a close-by reserve, such as the Royal Botanic Gardens and the St. Kilda Botanical Gardens. Bring your camera to capture photos of the native wildlife.

Prepare some snacks and gather some friends to spend time in one of the relaxing green spaces nearby. You have a number of options, including Royal Park, Carlton Gardens, Fitzroy Gardens and Flagstaff Gardens.

A trip away is a splendid opportunity to splash your cash and grab a few souvenirs. Be sure to stroll through Queen Victoria Market, Melbourne Central, Bourke Street Mall and Jam Factory!

The Swinburne University of Technology, Old Melbourne Gaol, the Royal Exhibition Building and the Victoria University of Technology have many tales to tell. History buff or not, you'll certainly find out something at these weathered, old sites.

Whatever your faith, it's worth going to St Patrick's Cathedral, St Paul's Cathedral, Shrine of Remembrance and Abbotsford Convent.

Few things are as electrifying as attending a live sports game. Why not see the Carlton Football Club, the Essendon Football Club or the North Melbourne Football Club attempt to claim glory at their home arena of Etihad Stadium?
