What is there to do in Melbourne?
Sydney has the classy shopping centres, Byron Bay has the idyllic beaches and prime surfing waves, yet Melbourne is generally regarded as the best city in Australia. The graffiti in China Town and the hippie paradise in St. Kilda embody the diversity and carelessly cool vibe synonymous with Melbourne. Whilst in St. Kilda, which resembles an 80’s surfing town, head to the famous pier where penguins reside in the rocks around the coast.
In Melbourne city centre, a whole week could be spent exploring the hidden gems found in the back streets. The trendiest bars with a laid back chilled atmosphere are generally only found after a few days, but once stumbled upon, the nightlife in Melbourne makes the city one of the most popular in the Southern Hemisphere. Young people from around the globe fill the clubs and bars; don’t be surprised to hear music from all genres in one place – making it impossible to leave before closing time. If staying out till the early hours isn’t desirable, there are free art displays and media shows at the Media Centre in Federation Square.
The tram system is generally the quickest and easiest way to get around Melbourne, though the city is so large that it may necessitate the use of the train to reach the outer areas. The city centre can mostly be covered by foot, but there are also several taxis readily available for quick and convenient transport.
