Top Things to See and Do in Melbourne—A Magnitude of Attractions

Melbourne is one of the best cities in the world for a holiday. You will never be bored as you explore and soak up the ambience there. Enjoy browsing the galleries, chilling at the parks, entertainment at South Bank and dining on eclectic selections. Check out the top things to do in Melbourne.


Head Out to the Park for a Movie

Checking into your Melbourne hotel on a late summer evening gives you the perfect excuse to get refreshed and head out for an evening experience in one of the most liveable cities in the world. City hotels in Melbourne, Australia, are well located to offer easy access to the main allures of the city and the Royal Botanic Gardens is one such attraction; the PARKROYAL Melbourne Airport is less than half an hour from the park where you can go for some movie magic in summer. Head over to the Central Lawn of the park and you can catch the latest flick to be screened, which generally consists of Hollywood blockbusters. Take along a blanket and sweater to stay warm, and maybe you could even get your Melbourne hotel to pack you a picnic basket. Movies may get cancelled due to rain, so do ask around before making plans.


Go on a Graffiti Tour

Graffiti in Melbourne is a hip art, and you can visit the Graffiti Alley and others spread throughout the Central Business District to let the local talent awe and impress you with some very thought-provoking works of art. Graffiti is given huge prominence in Melbourne with officials recognising the talented street artists and acknowledging the importance of encouragement. You can join a walking tour or take one that is conducted by one of the artists themselves to learn more about the creative minds of the colourful creations adorning the walls.


Ride the City Circle Tram

This one is a must for that authentic experience in Melbourne. The City Circle tram is a free service that is designed to take tourists on a loop tour across the city. There is an auto-generated narrative that lets you know about each attraction that you are passing. You can hop on or off at any point with trams running every 10 minutes for convenience. Watch out though, a fair share of locals takes the tram, which does the rounds within the CBD.


Explore Federation Square

Fed Square is a cool hangout spot for many locals and tourists from near and far. The area is a one-stop venue for entertainment and dining with plenty of restaurants, little alleys that are home to boutique stores, and galleries and open-air markets to browse.


The South Bank

Head out to the South Bank for a morning or evening of entertainment. There is plenty to do there from exploring the chic art galleries to discovering local lifestyles. You can have lunch at a sunny café or grab a sandwich and sit back on the lawn and enjoy the sunny weather.
