Melbourne holiday highlights

Visit Queen Victoria Market, admire the modern architecture in Federation Square and stroll down Flinders Lane for some boutique shopping. Melbourne is big on sports; visit the Sports Precinct and catch a cricket match or a game of Australian football. Some of the city’s best eateries in Melbourne’s cool labyrinthine laneways, where unassuming spaces have been transformed into high-end dining and street food stalls. Each arcade has its own individual character and charm.

On the banks of the Yarra River, the Southbank is home to high-end hotels and a vibrant entertainment scene with glorious river and city views. The popular beach suburb of St Kilda can be reached by tram from Melbourne. The foreshore is a hub of activity, with people strolling, cycling or skating under the palms. Dining options are excellent, with local restaurants and cool cafés. A 10-minute drive from central Melbourne, South Yarra is one of the oldest and most upmarket inner-city suburbs, where you’ll find trendy Chapel Street with its boutique shops and host of independent bars and restaurants. You can pack plenty into a couple of nights in Melbourne if you’re short on time too. Take a day trip to Phillip Island to see the heart-melting Penguin Parade or go wine tasting in the Yarra Valley.

Melbourne self-drives
Melbourne is one of the best places to start or end an Australian road trip. It makes part of a brilliant twin city itinerary on the Sydney to Melbourne Coastal Drive and is just an hour and a half from the Great Ocean Road, Australia’s most well-known coastal drive that you can follow up on a quieter drive to Adelaide.
