Fun Things to do in Melbourne – Experience the World’s Most Liveable City.

Bordering the coastlines of Port Phillip Bay lies Melbourne, a bustling metropolis of Australia. Covering the greater part of a megalopolis, Melbourne boasts of homing the second largest population in the country. Here are some fun things you can do in Melbourne.

1

Admire the Striking Street Art

Melbourne has gained world accolades for its vibrant collection of street art that seem to surround you in a colourful haze as you pass them on the streets. Duckboard Place, Rutledge Lane, and Rose Street are some of the places you can admire these fantastic depictions of human imagination. The many brightly coloured stencils, paste-ups, and mixed media art light up the streets and give a penny for your thoughts as you meander through the lanes. Also, there are incredible murals of celebrities that can be spotted in every nook and corner of the city.

Visit the State Library of Victoria

In Swanston street of Melbourne lies the fourth most visited library in the world. It is a beautiful heritage building that dates back to the 1850s and is the oldest library in Australia. It was recently renovated spending over $88 million through a span of 5 years. The neoclassical landmark provides shelter to 2 million books and has increased its seating facilities with 70 per cent due to the recent splurge on its renovations. One should visit the library to marvel at its stunning new reading spaces, the children's quarter and a world-class gallery where fascinating exhibitions are held on a timely basis.

Live in a Narrative World

Transcending the average escape rooms, Ukiyo in Melbourne takes you on a journey through a world of stories. It is a game style in which elements of escape rooms and adventurous video games are combined to provide you with a mind-blowing experience through fictional worlds that you can explore. You can be your own narrator in adventures such as 'The Crumbling Prince' where you will be literally present in a whirlwind of fiction. Played by 2-4 players in an interactive environment, it offers a unique and incredible storyline for the eager and enthusiastic player.

Indulge in a Sensory Journey

An experience of a lifetime can be gained with 'Dialog in the Dark' in Melbourne. It is a sensory journey in complete darkness where one will be guided by the blind or people with partial blindness. Throughout the experience, you will have heightened senses as your sight is lost in the dark, black ocean of the surrounding darkness. It is a journey where you don't get to see but experience your own potential to adapt to change and things that are unfamiliar. It would indeed be a life-altering experience as you experience Melbourne like never before!
