Whether you are sporty, arty, a foodie, a wine lover, historian or a traveller — Melbourne offers something for everyone whatever age you are.
Muso’s unite — from free concerts in the Myer Music Bowl to Opera Australia and the Australian Ballet performances at the Arts Centre and the heart of Melbourne’s jazz scene at Paris Cat.
Or visit the Shrine of Remembrance located in the beautiful Botanical Gardens.
The NGV hosts Friday night parties for members in their gardens plus showcases world circuit artists.
It is said that Melbourne is the foodie haven of Australia from on trend restaurants such as Heston’s Fat Duck to Shane Delia’s Maha to many bistros, themed restaurants and laneway cafes or hang out at Ponyfish Island and enjoy a bevvy whilst the rowers pass by enroute to the Docklands.
If you want a break from watching musicals, rock concerts, playing roulette at the Casino or watching the footy, you can visit Melbourne’s outlying areas such as the Yarra Valley and visit a few wineries – perhaps you might like to fly in via hot air balloon and enjoy a champagne brunch. Or do a winery tour on horse back in The Mornington Peninsula or promenade along the Millionaires’ Walk along the cliffs of Sorrento, enjoy some shopping, take the kids for an adventure day tree surfing or a dip at the Peninsula Hot Springs.
Or you can enjoy a picnic at Hanging Rock or go surfing at Bells Beach on the Great Ocean Road.
Or just chill out at St Kilda’s café spots or go paddle boarding, kite-boarding or sailing around Port Phillip bay and enjoy the sunset.
Whatever you choose you will not be disappointed.
