Melbourne Travel Guide

Melbourne is the second-largest city in Australia. It's known for its beautiful coast, sports-crazed population and excellent musuems. From Federation Square and its cultural events to the pier at the famous St. Kilda Beach, Melbourne is full of action.

Things to Do in Melbourne

To explore the city's history and culture, visit the Melbourne Museum and the Royal Exhibition Building, as well as The Immigration Museum and the Chinese Museum for different cultural perspectives. One of the major shopping destinations in Australia is Queen Victoria Market. This market is a Victorian-era building with food stands and shops of all kinds. Also notable are the city's 19th-century 'laneways' and shopping arcades, which are lined with cafes, galleries and boutiques. Additionally, the riverside Royal Botanic Gardens, and the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground in Yarra Park are worth checking out.

Best Time to Visit Melbourne

Melbourne's pleasant weather can be enjoyed best during spring (September to November) and fall (March to May). These are good times to enjoy the city on foot or by bike. Setting up a picnic in one of the city's main parks is also highly recommended.
