The Best Things to Do in Melbourne before You Die – Discovering the best side of Melbourne

You can never get bored of Melbourne. No matter how many times you visit this place, there is always something new to unravel about this place. Following are a few favourite attractions.


Phillip Islands

The Phillip Island is actually located on the outskirts of Melbourne roughly 2 hours from Melbourne city. Known above all for its penguins and relaxing ambience, the Phillip Island is a popular destination for weekend getaways. There is plenty to see at the Phillip Island, but the penguins that make their way to the shore are by far the biggest highlight of this destination. In fact these penguins from the 'Penguin Parade' also happen to be the world's largest Penguin Colony. Other interesting places that can be visited in the Phillip islands include the Koala conservation center, Nobbies, the chocolate factory and a breathtakingly scenic spot where you can spot some seals.


Melbourne Zoo

A very popular family attraction, the Melbourne zoo is located in the heart of the Melbourne city. Home to a number of interesting animals, this zoo is well organized and gives you an opportunity to witness all your favourite species both within and without Australia. From elephants, tigers to lions and more there is an array of interesting animals that range from the most fierce to the most innocent.


Werribee Mansion

The Werribee Mansion is actually located in the West of Melbourne and is one of the few attractions that costs nothing to enter. It is a place that takes visitors back to the yesteryears of this nation. In fact the mansion was actually put up by wealthy sheep farmers and flaunts an Italian design that is just as attractive today as it was when it was first built. By the side of the mansion is the Victoria State Rose Garden which displays a collection of over 5000 pristine roses and is simply stunning to say the least.


St. Kilda

Melbourne is a coastal city so experiencing its beaches is definitely a must do activity here. Of all the beaches in Melbourne, the most popular name on the list is St Kilda. An absolutely pristine little strip of water and sand, St Kilda showcases the best of Melbourne's coast in a single location. In addition to its picture perfect appearance, St Kilda is also known for its bustling pier. Best part is unlike most other beaches, St. Kilda is located close to the city and can easily be accessed even if you have opted for a South Yarra accommodation such as the Oaks South Yarra for instance. With all these perks and more it really is no wonder that St. Kilda makes the perfect place for a family getaway all year round.


Rialto Tower Observation Deck

Melbourne boasts a gorgeous cityscape that is best admired from way up in the sky. One of the most perfect spots to get a good 360 degree bird's eye view of Melbourne is from the famous Rialto Tower Observation Deck. Located on the 55th floor at 234 meters above ground, the picture of Melbourne from up here really is something else.
